Only had 2 nights here during our trip in NT and stayed on a powered site. Close proximity to facilities and beautiful river. Staff were friendly and informative from booking in to checking out. Plenty of walks to do around the grounds we did the billabong walk on foot but bikes or buggys can be hired. Took advantage of the... More

A 4 day tour of the Top End visiting many interesting places including Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, was a dream come true. The experience was made that much better by having Barrie, our guide and Rogan, our driver of the very comfortable bus, looking after us. Mary River Wilderness Retreat is surrounded by beautiful grounds that also has a... More

We stayed here at the end of May 2015 in a pool side bungalow. This is a fantastic location with the Mary river backing onto the property.The room was basic but clean. A kettle and coffee/tea are provided along with a small fridge. Mozzies were everywhere outside. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a good camp kitchen... More

The Mary River Wilderness Park is a great place for nature lovers. The grounds are frequented by groups of wallabies, birds call in the trees and there are three nature trails to walk, should you be so inclined. Crocodiles may live in the billabongs, but that is only to be expected in the NT. Our cabin was on the outskirts... More

We stayed three nights at this facility between Darwin and Kakadu and enjoyed our stay very much. This is a fairly basic resort but provides a perfect base for visiting the local parks, etc. We stayed in a cabin which was comfortable and had good a/c which we appreciated. The Mary River, which has the largest concentration of salt water... More

What a great find! We stayed 3 nights in a bush bungalow and loved it. Green manicured lawns, trees and wallabies hopping around in the distance. Nice pool, deck and restaurant. We hired a polycraft boat at the Park for four hours on the Mary River - tried fishing, saw crocs, eagles, bats, wallabies and birds over the 8+ km... More

We stayed for 4 nights to do a fishing charter and would have liked to have stayed 2 weeks.Cabins were clean, tidy, and more than adequately set up. Pools and surroundings were lovely. Restaurant and all staff that we met were really great and helpful. The wildlife and birdlife was entertaining and lovely to wake up to.

A pleasant surprise so close to Darwin. We stayed in a family bungalow which was comfortable, air conditioned, with its own veranda in a shady garden setting. We were also able to have a camp fire in a designated fire pit. No cooking facilities in the cabins but there is a community kitchen or you can bring your own BBQ.... More
