We loved this! it was like being sent to stay with your lovely auntie in Australia, comfortable room that felt really far away from everyone else even though it wasn't, excellent onsite walks and a really enjoyable river cruise. Our room was quite far down the lawn which I liked, the food was good and hosts really friendly and knowledgeable... More

We only were able to stay one night, but enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The cruise on the river was lovely sighting some crocs in the wild was great without them being unnaturally tempted to come close with food, like other croc cruises in the area. Staff were ok though, did find the reception slightly rude and was a little disappointed... More

We had a single night, mostly because we were in transit to Kakadu. The kids enjoyed make your own pizza. The campsite was tidy and the amenities good. Never got around to using the pool but it looked inviting. Friendly and helpful staff. We'd go again.

We were a bit apprehensive about what we would find at MRWR after a miserable stay in a shabby and outrageously expensive cabin at Kakadu Lodge, Jabiru. Our fears quickly melted away. The staff members were all welcoming, pleasant and helpful. Being the end of the "hot dry", domestic tourists had started flocking home south, and in early September we... More

We visited towards the end of the dry season so the vegetation was very brown and lifeless and the wildlife were hiding from the intensity of the sun. However we had the best time because the hosts, Rogan and Bron run such a great touring experience. Simone our guide was excellent and we visited many aboriginal rock art sites as... More

What a lovely little gem this place is. Only a short drive from Darwin, the beautifully kept gardens are lovely to walk around. We stayed in one of the bush bungalows, which was very neat and comfortable. The property relies on bore water which is potable, but tastes a little funky. A bottle of complimentary bottled water is provided but... More

The Mary River Wilderness Retreat is an awesosome place to stay. My Husband I stayed for 4 days recently and had a great time whilst there. The staff, amenities, activities to do whilst there and general location were 10/10. It is peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful, whilst close enough to do many day trips, especially to Kakadu, in itself a must... More

This is a great place to camp for a few nights en route to Kakadu, with plenty to see in the area. The campsite is well run, with shady powered sites ($33 per night) and lots of other non-powered sites. Wallabies jump around in the park and there are several marked walks. The river boat trip was excellent value at... More

Mary River Wilderness retreat & caravan park On the way from Darwin to Kakadu we stranded here for two days, due to a broken down rental vehicle. Despite the frustration over this, we had a lovely time at Mary River. The caravan sites were lovely and provided access to all the required facilities. Moreover, the staff was extremely helpful and... More

For a resort they really offer basics. There was no phone (or cell phone reception) in the room no TV and the only WiFi was at the reception which was expensive and not good (to repeat what the receptionist told us). The flash light on the key was a surprise but was useful as the trails are not lit. The... More
