Field Guides

Each of our Field Guides are carefully selected for their extensive knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm for the natural world. They are not only skilled interpreters of the flora and fauna but also storytellers who will bring the rich history and cultural significance of the region to life.

With their wealth of experience, our guides will lead you on captivating safaris, sharing their in-depth knowledge of the native wildlife, birdlife, and ecosystems that make the floodplains and woodlands of the Mary River so remarkable.

Beyond their knowledge and expertise, our guides also embody the spirit of conservation and sustainability.

Come and meet our passionate Field Guides at Bamurru Plains and embark on an adventure that will leave you with a profound appreciation for the wonders of nature.
