We came here to enjoy a few tours which we did but we also had enough time to relax and enjoy the pool/bar. Karl the new owner spoke with us about the area... More

Wildman Wilderness Lodge (WWL) is a unique property in a true wilderness area. It suits those with an adventurous spirit, which is a prerequisite in the Territory. You can self drive or the lodge will arrange transportation. We chose to drive so we could visit Kakadu ourselves and stop in on various local truck stops/Taverns/tourist sights which are full of...

We stayed here for 2 nights over Easter, we booked a safari tent but it was very, very hot, will be beautiful in June, July, August. The staff were great, we felt for them as it was the first weekend of their takeover and it was understaffed. The weather was really hot and the only cool area was the bar.... More

Wildman is a fantastic place to enjoy a few days of nature, quietness, relaxation, good food, and adventure. We stayed 3 nights and did almost every tour except the Kakadu since we've done that before. The air flight transfer in from our flight from Darwin was the best way to arrive, we got to see amazing sights and have a... More

The ride to the lodge from the airport left us wondering what we had gotten ourselves into, but upon our arrival our driver\guide Richard took us to the waters edge and immediatly pointed out a crock to us. Our habitat was awesome. A full front wall of glass, with rolling shades for privacy. This glass wall is also the front... More

We actually stayed in November 2013 and apologetically have only just got round to writing a review now. The setting is amazing, and even though we didn't get to see the croc....the friendly staff made it a highly memorable and fun stay.

The Lodge had a perfect set up to relax, the included 3 course meal was excellent and the Safari Tent was spacious and well appointed. Excellent Pool and bar set up to relax after a hard days driving. The facilities are well maintained and new unlike some other facilities in the day trip range of Darwin.

The remoteness, yet ease of access by self-drive from Darwin; the friendliness of the welcome; the luxury of the cabin and the excellence of the food! Those elements together with the excursions, all combined to make this more than live up to my expectations.
