I stayed at this resort for a night and was greeted by an amazing resort host Teresa. her bubbly friendly welcome and attitude was enough to make me realise this was going to be a fabulous stay! Staff were knowledgeable and very friendly. Resort in itself was absolutely breathtaking, i would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to get... 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

The potential for Wildman to be wonderful is huge but it misses at too many things. We met up with Australian family for my in laws 50th wedding anniversary and despite telling the receptionist was a special occasion there was absolutely no acknowledgment of this. The tents were great and the cleaning and service of these was also good. The... More

We spend 3 nights at the lodge and had a pleasant time although there is definitely room for improvement. We stayed in a tent, which was nice and comfortable - it would have nice though if the staff would put down the sides of the tent at night so you aren't busy doing that for a good 20 minutes, and...

The service at this hotel was abominable beyond belief. Every interaction with hotel staff was a total disaster, I was constantly wondering how their service could be so consistently appalling. The staff are very young amateurs. In our 24 years of travelling the work we have never experienced such a continual run of mishandles events in any one stay, we... More

Stated at Wildman as part of a package tour. Transfers from Darwin were seamless (about a 2 hour drive). We stayed in a cabin, definitely looked to be a better choice than the tents. My only complaint was the lack of door between the bedroom and bathroom. AC worked perfectly, and bug spray was provided to knock down anything that... More

We have recently completed an adventure to the north of Australia. One of our planned stays was at Wildman Wilderness Lodge...and for us it was a significant disappointment following a wonderful stay at Cooinda Yellow Water Lodge. We paid over $500 per night for safari tent ensuite accommodation which was lovely and the food was outstanding, although a second rate... More

This was an interesting stay. The location was great, rooms also good - we stayed in a tent. We did a full day Kakadu tour with Chizo who was an amazing guide - so knowledgable! And the Mary River cruise was also fantastic - great birds and crocs! But the food choices were very basic. No vegetarian options on the... More
