Bamurru Plains provides an exclusive wildlife experience on the magnificent Mary River floodplains, just three hours from Darwin on the western boundary of Kakadu National Park. Located on Swim Creek Station, the safari-style bungalow suites are set amidst the savannah woodland, teeming with wildlife, reptiles and birds. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, without the usual modcons of contemporary living, drawing your focus to the surrounding wilderness for a luxurious, secluded getaway.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush in the dining area serving local produce and offering commanding views across the vast wetlands. Fishing is a popular activity in the region with private access to river fishing for barramundi during the wet season, or for an exhilarating experience, jump on an airboat complete with fitted casting deck, and explore the Swim Creek floodplain for the perfect catch.
Discover the floodplains of the Mary River on a morning tour to see thousands of local birdlife species, spot crocodiles on a cruise of the Sampan River - one of the largest populations of crocodile in the world, or take a guided four-wheel drive trip in the afternoon during the dry months to admire the fragile natural environment.
