These bungalows are set in a lush rain forest setting. This makes the whole experience better. We must say we enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very basic and the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The room was decorated in all the colours of the rainbow. The two sheets, pillowcases and cover were all different bright colours. The... More

It’s a very easy drive from Darwin (~ 100km). When we arrived at noon the manger (Sue) was ready for us and over about 20 minutes gave us a detailed description of Litchfield National Park and the many things we could do there – the best walks to go on, the swimming holes to go to, and the best time...

While we loved the nature in this place, we had more cons to dislike this place. Firstly the complimentry breakfast with fruit platter is totally a joke! Only 2 quarters of grapefruit, pinaple and lemon for 2 people. As shown in the picture below. These are not really bungalows these are very tiny little cabins. Not spacious at all for... More

This property is nice with a few bungalows under the trees. The common room is pleasant and the swimming pool ok. It is not far from Litchfield park. What is best is the owner. She's a very charming lady and she gave us so many good advices for the park and also the restaurants.

What a lovely bed and breakfast area so close to Litchfield national park. We spent one night here and would definitely recommend it. The owner was very knowledgable and shared some local secrets and great places to visit we wouldn't have otherwise seen! Bungalows were clean and comfortable and breakfast was lovely.

Had a great couple of nights here at Batchelor staying at the Rum Jungle bungalows. Host very helpful. Lovely continental breakfast complimentary for the first night. Very quiet and lush gardens with a great variety of plants and flowers. Very clean swimming pool surrounded with thick tropical plants and lots of comfortable chairs and leisure seats.
