- About Us
In the 'Top End' of Australia on the edge of the Mary River floodplains, just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of Kakadu is Bamurru Plains, a 300 km2 private buffalo pastoral property that accommodates just 20 guests. This Top End region is a place of climatic extremes and the tropical monsoon climate brings spectacular storm skies and an annual cycle of environmental rebirth.
Guests come to experience a beautiful wilderness region and its prolific wildlife and birdlife. At night no other lights shine out; the only sound is the deep chorus of the Australian bush - various frog species, barking owls and the occasional dingo.
Surrounded by wetlands and savannah woodlands, Bamurru Plains is often likened to the Okavango Delta of Botswana and the fragile ecosystem remains one of the world's most beautiful wilderness areas with its vast diversity of animals and birds.
Nearby Kakadu, a region of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, is one of a few World Heritage listed areas for both its cultural and its natural values. Kakadu National Park is managed jointly by its Aboriginal traditional owners and the Director of National Parks.
Guests enjoy exclusive access to Bamurru's miles of the Sampan River, coast and Mary River Floodplain system with daily guided wilderness activities such as croc-spotting river cruises, 4WD safaris, wildlife viewing or walking tours.
