Bamurru Plains

Destinations & Resorts

Australia and New Zealand › Australia › Northern Territory | Uluru, Outback & Red Center › Mary River National Park
Location Details
Bamurru Plains is located on the edge of the Mary River floodplains just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of Kakadu National Park. The property is a 20 minutes flight by light aircraft from Darwin airport, 3 hours drive from Darwin, 2 ½ hours from Jabiru (Kakadu National Park).
General Information
A style of accommodation more akin to some of the safari camps in Africa, Bamurru Plains’ attraction lies in the birdlife and wildlife of the surrounding floodplains and savannah woodland. As with the African camps, a stylish wilderness experience does not need to be 5 star in the traditional sense. Bamurru offers an experience that is utterly exclusive, rustically chic and totally in tune with the surrounding country.
