Bamurru’s chefs incorporate native and locally sourced produce to provide a gourmet experience integrating authentic, yet contemporary Australian recipes, from kangaroo skewers to crispy barramundi with finger lime salsa and quandong ice-cream.
Dining is enjoyed with fellow guests, where the day’s stories are recounted and new friends are made.
After you’ve woken to the laugh of a blue-winged kookaburra, the soundtrack of the corellas’ cacophony and the chorus of thousands of magpie geese, enjoy a light breakfast such as freshly baked wild berry & wattle seed muffins, ‘bush eggs’ any style on sourdough with bacon, tomato, warrigal green & kutjera relish or house blend bircher museli with Manuka honey, bush apple and a dollop of vanilla bean yoghurt.
Lunch is generally served on the wildlife observation deck overlooking the floodplains, where you might enjoy citrus and fennel warm chicken salad with roasted macadamia nuts while watching a changing cast of birds, brumbies, buffalo and wallabies.
Canapés and sundowners are enjoyed out in the wilderness during your afternoon activity or on the lodge deck just before dinner.
Nightly, a three-course dinner hosted by one of your field guides is served at the long timber dining table as frogs break into a croaky serenade. The menu features Australian bush-inspired recipes. Watch our chef create his favourite bush spiced duck confit in the open kitchen from the dinner table.
Guests can help themselves to drinks at any time from the self-service bar offering a variety of refreshments, including an after dinner tipple for those so inclined.
The most exclusive way of enjoying lunch in the bush at one of Australia’s most exclusive bush properties is at The Hide – designed in true Wild Bush Luxury style. With a gourmet picnic hamper, a selection of premium wines, a bird book, set of binoculars and a two way radio to stay in touch, let one of Bamurru’s field guides drop you at The Hide to enjoy a romantic lunch and afternoon siesta with just the sounds and sights of the floodplain to keep you company.
$95 per person for two hours including a private safari drive or airboat to The Hide with a chef-prepared picnic lunch and premium wine.
NB: There is a minimum of 2, maximum of 6 for the Siesta Lunch Retreat
