A very upmarket eco lodge. It’s only been opened a couple of years & the “habitat” cabin was very well presented, with floor to ceiling windows & sliding doors to make the best of the view. The rain shower also had a floor to ceiling window view.
There was a beautiful infinity swimming pool, good bar room and a large dining room. They served a really good standard of food, including local barramundi fish and crocodile and the wait staff were very attentive.
Free wifi internet in the bar area.
Access to a great air boat (a flat boat with a propeller at the rear) tour of the wetlands. Although expensive at $165 for 45 minutes, it gave us great sightings of the birds & some crocodiles.
Not so good:
A door separating the bathroom from the bedroom would have been appreciated for privacy.
Expensive at $500/night but we were on an Outback Spirit Tour, so we probably stayed there at a cheaper price.
