We had an absolutely amazing 3 days Davidsons. The stunning location has the best of the Top End in one small area - rock formations, incredible rock art that is among the best anywhere, wetalands and wildlife - and excellent guides to show it. After a month of camping around the NT, the cabins were luxury and the food amazing.

My husband and I traveled to Davidson's with our family (4 grandparents and 2 children) and had an amazing time. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We were in awe of the land, the eco-system, the bird life, the crocodiles, and wild life in general. The rock art was unbelievable - both in beauty and history. Our guide was extremely knowledgable... More

I'm sitting in the comfortable lounge of the lodge, listening to whistling kites, cockatoos, kookaburras, a gentle breeze in the trees. Just had a lovely breakfast with new friends, whom I first met on the sunset cruise last night. I was pleased to hear the dingo song early this morning - somehow I never want to sleep in here, there's... More

Four of us had a 45 minute flight from Darwin to land in the beautifully remote location at Mount Borradaile. Our USA friends could not get over the remoteness. For the next 3 days we experienced the Australian outback as never before. The knowledgeable staff led by Clare were unbelievably competent in every way. From the quality 20 cabins on... More

Our stay at Davidson's was our first and it was an amazing experience. The location is remote and offers much more than a place to stay while exploring Arnhemland. From the moment we flew into the airstrip the guides were very helpful. The guides (especially Lachlan in our case) really make the visit something to remember for a long time.... More

Wow. What amazing place to stay. Beautiful cabins in the middle of nowhere. But there are beautiful swimming holes, an incredible billabong TEAMING with wildlife, lots of crocs and birds, a real treat. And the rock art is a real treat. If you can do it this is a must see part of the Northern Territory.

Dazzling. Unique. Magic. Savage and sublime. Thios is Mother Nature with her hair down. Crocs galore, whistling ducks and magpie geese come in clouds, jabirus, brolgas, white breasted sea eagles, etc etc. The wetlands of Arnhemland are one of the world's special places and Davidson's Safari Lodge is its viewing platform. But while the wildlife is phenomenal, the rock art... More
