We'd stayed here for one night in 2008 and came back for a two night stay as part of our Aussie trip to celebrate a retirement for one of us. We wanted to fish for Barramundi and see the rainbow serpent plus enjoy the serenity of this remote and wonderful place. It was as amazing as we remembered, but this... More

My husband and I were part of a large group from around Australia. Having never travelled to the Top End before, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by all that Max Davidson's lodge had to offer. The accommodation is in cabins, with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms; spread around the central lodge where you gather... More

My daughter and I had three fabulous days here. We drove in from Kakadu, it's a comfortable four wheel drive road. Missed the turn off at first but they were putting up new signs. It is soon after Oenpelli. The rock art, billabongs, flood plain were incredible. We were taken around with a small family. We discussed options in the... More

Good points: Very remote – you need a permit to enter Arnhem Land & then you have to either fly in or travel by a fair way on a rough road with Outback Spirit, which we did. The accommodation is in basic but comfortable huts with ensuite & just fly screens rather than windows separating us from a view of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Come and share the wonders of Mt Borradaile, the lily-covered billabongs and waterways teeming with birds, crocodiles and barramundi. The adjacent escarpment hides quality Aboriginal rock art in old habitation caves and shelters, where the history of the region is vividly depicted in ochre paintings. Elegant hunting figures with spears and boomerangs illustrate life up to 50,000 years ago, while vibrant spirit figures and ships show the evolution of the world’s oldest continuing living culture.The newly rebuilt safari lodge melts into the surrounding bush, with the new ensuite cabins built to embrace the top end climate. Deluxe ensuite cabins provide a few more luxuries for those who enjoy a little spoiling. The central hub overlooks the pool and offers cold beers, wines and spirits at the bar for guests to enjoy in the lounge area or the poolside deck after an exhilarating day.Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris is located on a 700km² exclusive lease in northwest Arnhemland, only fifty minutes by light plane from Darwin. Mt Borradaile is a registered Aboriginal sacred site, a uniquely spectacular and culturally significant place entrusted by the traditional owners to Max Davidson and his highly trained guides to share with small groups of visitors. ... more   less
