Safari Days Starry Nights

Gurrung Season at Bamurru Plains

Referred to as Gurrung (pronounced Gooroong) by the Indigenous people of the Top End, the end of the dry season transforms the remaining billabongs of Bamurru Plains, drawing in huge numbers of varied wildlife. Think the Top End’s version of an African vista where birdlife congregate in extraordinary numbers rarely seen in Australia. Water buffalos, brumbies, agile wallabies, whistling ducks, dingos and azure kingfishers all enjoying a drink or an afternoon wallow. The further reaches of the property become accessible on foot and by 4WD safari as the waters of the floodplain recede, and the Sampan Creek provides a hive of activity on croc-spotting river cruises. Afternoon drinks by the infinity-edge swimming pool are set-off by the thunderstorms that can be seen rolling along the coast towards the end of October, this time of year provides truly extraordinary opportunities for photographers!
