Wallaroos, wallabies, crocodiles, dingoes and buffalo are just some of the thousands of species that inhabit the fertile floodplains and savannah woodlands in the Mary River catchment area. A little west of the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, and with just ten bungalows on offer, Bamurru Plains lets you lose yourself to the remote wilderness with minimal impact on the fragile environment.
The camp is built at the edge of bushland, so as not to disturb existing plant growth, and almost all power for electricity and hot water is generated from whisper-quiet solar panels. Bore water is filtered for drinking and native herb soaps are entirely chemical free. Bamurru Plains is so committed to sustainability that sheets are organic cotton and sand-coloured, so as not to require bleach.
Meals at camp are contemporary Australian, with an emphasis on home-grown seasonal ingredients thus your daily menu is also influenced by what time of year it is. Expect plenty of locally sourced fish and meats, as well as bush spices, finger limes and macadamia nuts. There is also an onsite bar where guests can help themselves to a range of refreshments.
