As an Aussie who has heard about the Top End for years I thought I knew what to expect but I got so much more than I ever dreamed. Wall to wall birds, wallabies, buffalo and more with the most knowledgeable guides on 4WD , airboats and helicopters topped off with cuisine to rival the top hatted restaurants in the big cities. Our every wish was catered for with friendly, warm and unobtrusive service and smiles from all. We had plenty sf signtseeing as well as time by (and in) the pool and for try first time in years we had no phone or Internet to distract us - absolute bliss!!!
This is worth every penny and is undisputed outback in delightful style - you cannot miss it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the midst of the savannah bush on the edge of the Mary River floodplains, Australia’s answer to the Okavango delta, Bamurru Plains’ is the setting for a wilderness experience like no other. With just nine safari suites, each blending seamlessly with the surrounding bush and with a focus on the key luxury comforts, a supremely comfortable bed, innovative Australian cuisine and premium wines (no TVs, minibars or telephones to distract from the wildlife outside), Bamurru deliberately tries not to be a typical luxury hotel room in the bush. The floodplains and savannah woodland offer one of Australia’s richest wildlife experiences: tens of thousands of Magpie Geese mingle with Whistling Kites, egrets, herons and buffalo on the floodplain, while Blue-winged Kookaburras, parrots, cockatoos and Agile Wallabies inhabit the fringing woodlands. Bamurru’s team of passionate field guides offer a variety of activities, including exhilarating airboat trips on the floodplains, cruises on the Sampan River to spot crocodiles, four-wheel drive safaris, scenic flights over the floodplains and coastline. We can also arrange tours to the rock art galleries of Arnhem Land or guided fishing trips. In the evening, sit back with a sundowner drink and canapés and enjoy the soft ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ touches that are the Bamurru trademark. There is also an open bar, a small swimming pool and nature reference library. Bamurru Plains, its facilities and 300 km² of country are exclusively for the use of its guests, so you can be assured of a quiet, privileged outback experience.
