We had one night in the Safari tents on this property and it was magic. Noisy at night with all the animals calling to each other, but very comfortable beds, great shower and plenty of room. The meal was beautiful, as was the breakfast. They have a wonderful swimming pool adjacent to the bar. The bar was very well air... More

We stayed in private, permanent safari tents situated in the Mary River Wetlands. The lodge was my definition of 'outback luxury'. The dinners at night were of 5 Star quality and it was wonderful to sit outside around a firepit with a drink, to watch the magnificent sunsets.The surrounding landscape was beautiful. Wallabies happily bounded among the tents and the... More

My family and I enjoyed the unique experience of “glamping” in safari tents. We fell asleep to the sound of bats and insects humming outside our tent then woke in the morning to birds singing and kangaroos hopping outside our bedroom window. It was a surreal experience. While at Wildman’s we walked to their nearby Billabong where we saw two... More

We stayed in one of the "tents" which were great. Well equipped with refrigerator, tea and coffee facilities etc and plenty of space for our family of four. Great to sit on the verandah and look out at the wallabies and birdlife. Food was great - high quality dinners with good portion sizes and great cooked breakfast - any issues... More

What an amazing spot! It's possible to sit out on the porch of your "habitat" and gaze across the bush, with the termite mounds dotted around; a runway for light aircraft 30 metres away; see the colourful birds and families of wallabies darting around and watch the sunset. Or lay in bed and observe the stars or watch the dawn... More

We stayed at the Wildman Wilderness lodge for 2 nights as part of our "Ancient Secrets" AAT Kings tour. The accommodation in the permanent tents was wonderful. Tents is an understatement these are actually well appointed luxury hotel standard rooms! Waking up to the birdlife and with wallabies around the deck was really great. The lodge, restaurant, bar and service... More

I don't like leaving poor reviews. Wildman is in a great location, but it is let down by poor staff and customer service. I expect there is a high turnover of staff, as it's so remote, that most staff are probably young people travelling around Australia, and therefore only looking for temporary work. They were pleasant enough, but just not... More

We are ex Territorians living in Qld and love the uniqueness of wilderness lodges and glamping (luxury camping). Wildman is well thought out, we stayed in one of the lovely clean and spacious tents which have everything one needs. You are close to all the wildlife and a short stroll brings you to the billabong teaming with wildlife and some... More

The Lodge has recently changed hands and the new Owners are in the process of addressing some of the service issues mentioned by fellow travellers. Our experience was that the staff maybe young but were all trying hard to be accommodating . The tours including the Fishing tour and the Mary River Rockpool Billabong Cruise were conducted by Brad and... More
