We absolutely loved Bamurru Plains. It is very special and so relaxing. We were a little nervous about going at the end of the wet - but we need not have been concerned. It was raining when we landed and apart from a brief shower one afternoon (and a downpour at 3am) we had no further issues with the weather. The whole set up is fantastic. The tents are luxurious (in a barefoot luxury way) and allow you to lie in bed and watch the wildlife - wallabies, wild horses, buffalo, geese, herons, egrets when we were there. The bathroom/dressing room is very well appointed. The food is plentiful and delicious (up to the standard of hatted restaurants in the major cities). The pool with day beds is a great place to relax as is the central clubhouse. The excursion were fascinating - lots of birds and animals, well informed guides - on both land and water - and we visited come really magicall places (e.g. the area of the flood plain filled with lillies and lotus flowers). We can't recommend it highly enough!
- 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.
