These bungalows are located in a very attractive garden setting, with ducks, chickens a shaded swimming pool. The breakfast room in the centre of the site also doubles as a lounge for guests.

We stayed one night at one of the six bungalows. The room and bathroom have everything that you need and a restaurant is next door. Sue is a very kind owner of a wonderful place! Her brekky was fabulous, never had such a personal and tasteful start of the day!

This accommodation is a peaceful, secluded retreat within minutes of beautiful Litchfield Park. We spent only one night in this tropical paradise and wish we spend more... The beautiful, serenity of the location surprises you to its location within the town of Bachelor. Great rooms and fantastic service from cordial staff. We had a memorable time there and do regret...

We spent the weekend in Litchfield and decided to stay in Batchelor overnight. Travelling with 2 children we chose a Rum Jungle bungalow with a double and a single bed and then we took our own travel cot. Our room was a good size with everything we needed including a fridge and clean bathroom. The highlight was the Rum Jungle... More

The bungalows are set in a beautiful garden. A great location for exploring the Litchfield N.P. Sue gave us some great advice for day trips. Although the cabin is nicely decorated, the bed wasn't very good and our cabin wasn't overly clean (dusty and a lot of spiderwebs). Perhaps our expactations were to high, given all the positive reviews. The... More

I’m also sorry if you found dust in your bungalow – our rigorous cleaning procedures should take care of all dust prior to every new occupancy. I’m glad that the... More

We knew we were going to love this place from the moment we drove in. The lush tropical garden immediately transported us out of the rather dusty town of Batchelor and into the jungle. Sue has 6 cabins set in the gardens, together with a cool, shaded swimming pool, a BBQ area available for the guests to use and a... More

It sounds like you had a very rewarding experience observing the intricacies of the wildlife and the surrounding environment.
