Lush bush setting with large sites - a welcome change from the caravan parks in Darwin. Lots of bird life. The amenities were basic but very clean and efficient. There is limited wifi near the reception but hey, that's not what we go caravanning in national parks for :)

We had a very enjoyable 4 days touring around the Darwin and Kakadu area using the Mary River Wilderness Retreat as a base. Staff were helpful and informative. We learnt a lot about the natural habitat and aboriginal culture.

This place was a surprise and we would highly recommend a couple of days or more here to relax.
We had a cabin looking out across acres of green lawn with wallabys grazing all day.
There are several river walks and you can hire a golf buggy to self drive along the river.

Hi Karen, it sounds like you stayed in the caravan park part of the Retreat. Do you know if there are powered sites here? Can campervanners use all the facilities? Do you recommend booking? Thanks maria
Sorry - I was offline for this site. I'm sure you've been already. We stayed in a cabin but they did say they were totally booked for a few weekends following our visit, so I imagine a booking would be wise. It's a long way to go to be turned away! And there's those waiting crocs..... hahahaha

"Wilderness experience in comfort"
"Pool side cabins can use a dedicated second pool rather than the main pool. This pool is tree-shaded whereas the main pool is in full sun."
"Dont bother to choose a poolside bungalow if you do not mind a sarari tent with a shared bathroom"
"This is a wilderness retreat - no TV in the rooms and limited connectivity."
"A room by the pool is nice to sit outside"
