Watch wildlife play


“This experience blew everybody away. Everything about it. It is so well run and personal. The staff were amazing. The whole vibe of getting together for group cocktails and dinner every night felt authentic and special with a staff hosting every night. The activities were fun. The setting was great. The food was superb. The rooms were so unique.”

“All the staff are great, very knowledgeable and passionate about their surroundings which makes your trip even more special.”

“Bamurru was FAB, a similar set up to an African Safari Lodge. Very knowledgeable, professional guides with the Aussie sense of humour, wonderful bird life and comfortable accommodation with good food.”

“My Dad and I had a great trip. The whole experience really hangs together well and whilst capitalising on its surroundings is empathetic to them at the same time. The staff and guides were all fantastic and in particular Cam really stood out. We are now planning on making it up for a fishing trip at the end of the wet!”

“We truly did have a wonderful time at Bamurru Plains and would highly recommend to friends. The accommodation, main facilities and food were excellent. The guides and other staff were knowledgable, friendly and just basically fantastic. The activities were great – particularly the Kakadu flight and airboat safaris. The site of the lodge is superbly located that offers a variety of ecosystems to explore. Thank you for all your help to make this trip one of a lifetime.”

“We loved the luxury without the fuss. Sam is a fine young man, very personable & mature beyond his years. We loved Emma because she was so knowledgeable & fun. Special shout out to young Patty. A future leader.” 

“Exceeded our high expectations. Now dodge those crocs and stay well!”

“Cam was fantastic as was Chella. Contagious enthusiasm and very congenial”

“From the moment we arrived we just loved it. Our three nights felt like three weeks.”

“The scenery and wildlife are like nothing I’ve seen in Australia before and I loved being in such a remote location.”

“The guides really made the experience. Cam in particular is a wealth of knowledge and his passion transmitted to guests who commented on how he’d brought everything to life.”

“We sat in the heart of outback Australia on a lily pond, surrounded by Melalueca trees, silence and wonderous isolation from the world…”

“The icing on the cake is team Bamurru. They are vibrant, caring, fun, knowledgeable, professional, ever smiling, ever helpful and in short cannot do enough for you. Justin, Cameron, Sam and the boss Macca are wholly conscientious in ensuring your time at Bamurru is a time to remember. From the moment you are met at the Bamurru airstrip in the middle of a paddock to the time your Cessna takes off and Justin waves goodbye to you, they make your stay memorable.”

“Don’t delay….go to this remote location and whether it be for 1 day or 5, ditch the outside world and savour the Bamurru experience. If you are coming from overseas make sure you learn how to say G’day with an Aussie accent before you arrive!”

“And then there’s the floodplain that is alive with Magpie Geese, Jabiru’s, White Breasted Sea Eagles, Rainbow Coloured Bee Eater’s, Buffalo wading through the water as they gorge upon the abundant feast of succulent grass a consequence of the huge rains at the end of the wet season. Large wetland Billabongs covered with water Lillies stretching back into the Paperbarks as far as the eye can see.”

“If you like riding around flood plains on airboats, ogling prolific bird life, seeking out secretive crocodiles, floating noiselessly on still billabongs, sleeping in luxury tented cabins and enjoying gourmet meals, then ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ at Bamurru Plains is for you. An extraordinary place with fantastic staff, we enjoyed 3 of the most unique days of our lives here. Highly recommended!!!”

“Bamurru is a very special place with the wow factor. From the moment we were picked up at Swim Creek Station airfield everything was first class bush adventure. “

“Fishing for barramundi from the airboat, twice having a huge fish come up and swallow whole the 25cm fish we had hooked up, the amazing colours of the sunset, then getting up close and personal with the resident croc on the way home was a definite highlight!”

“It was a joy each morning to awaken to the sight of wallabies and buffalo grazing near our tent with countless birds flying overhead.”

“The airboat epitomised the Bamurru Plains experience. We floated across floodplains, past waterlilies, reeds, stringy-bark trees reflected standing in water, swamp buffalo eating then wallowing away, brumbies, jabiru, even our own crocodile as we drifted closer till it awoke. No news from the madding world, no digital distractions…”

“I want to thank management and staff of Bamurru Plains – from the very first contact on the phone calling ahead right through to sadly leaving I was so very impressed with the style, sophisticated service, amazing cuisine and the unmeasurable wildlife tours. “

“Come here to switch off, lie on the bed or the pool and watch the wild life go by.”
