We stayed here as part of a wilderness tour of the Kimberly and Kakadu. We had stayed previously at other wilderness lodges which were all very good. The same cannot be said of the Hawk Dreaming Lodge. It was advertised as a very special place to stay. We would sit round the campfire in the evening and chat with our... More

Hawk Dreaming was a unique experience. Small group, luxury tent with bathroom, great food and an excellent host combined to make our stay memorable. It's understatement felt completely appropriate. It was a privilege to stay in such special country. Katherine and Glenn

This was our first overnight stop on our 15 day APT tour. The team at Hawk Dreaming raised the bar for all other wilderness lodges along the way, and not one of them matched Hawk Dreaming. The food was amazing, and I will say specifically that the steaks were cooked perfectly as was the barramundi. Well done! The camp takes... More

We spent two wonderful nights at Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge, and would highly recommend it to any person wanting a very special experience in Kakadu. The accommodation is in 12 extremely comfortable en-suite tents, placed very strategically in the bush, which means you are in a smaller group of like-minded travellers. The hosts this season are the vivacious Vicki and... More

Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge is located at Cannon Hill, near Ubirr, in a restricted area of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. At this ancient site, the lodge offers a very special experience. Thanks to our partnership with the traditional custodians, youll enjoy the privilege of staying within the spiritual Hawk Dreaming region. The unique location and tranquil atmosphere offers a truly inspiring insight into Aboriginal culture and heritage through the vast array of rock art sites in the vicinity of the lodge. Due to Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodges location in a Restricted area of Kakadu National Park, alcohol cannot be provided by or brought to the camp. Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge features just 12 twin tented cabins with modern ensuite facilities, all providing hot showers, flushing toilets, fresh linen,and a deck with table & chairs. Come evening time, delightful three-course meals are served in the dining room, whilst after dinner youll cherish the opportunity to relax around the fire, absorb the night time surrounds of Kakadu and gaze up into the clear night sky at the stars. Its magical moments like these that you can cherish forever. Its no wonder this place is called Hawk Dreaming. Weve created an idyllic retreat, where you can relax in comfort and enjoy the tranquillity of the bush, as well as enjoy the extraordinary attractions of Kakadu National Park.
