Enjoy true freedom with our 6 Day Ultimate Top End package. We invite you to immerse yourself in an extraordinary bush experience on the coastal floodplains of Australia’s Top End. Bamurru Plains is a safari lodge with exclusive access to 300 km² of floodplains and savanna woodland on the Mary River, on the edge of Kakadu National Park.

A profusion of bird and wildlife are at the doorstep of this unique bush experience that exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and brings a touch of style to the discovery of a remote and beautiful wilderness. A stay at Bamurru is bound to inspire a greater awareness of Australia’s unique and specialised environment. Watch as hundreds of birds take flight from around the infinity-edge pool, scan the shallows for big saltwater crocodiles as you skim across floodplains by airboat or slowly cruise the Sampan River watching for silver flashes of fish breaking the surface. On guided walks and game drives search for brumbies, buffalo, dingos and wallabies or pause to consider an intriguing reptile or the adaptations of a particular insect.  You will also enjoy three nights at a 4-star Darwin hotel pre & post tour as well as included return scenic flights from Darwin to the Lodge and a full day tour to Kakadu.
