Venue Setting

Surrounded by an exotic landscape of wild palms and twisting trees Bamurru Plains is the perfect spot from which to explore the mysteries and magnificence of this ancient land. The \'Wild Bush Luxury\' concept brings a uniquely Australian style to your stay - a down to earth yet attentive level of service; an appreciation of the finer details; and above all a team of hosts and guides who are passionate about the area and its wildlife. The lodge is the perfect place to relax in a comfortable chair; a well stocked library offers a collection of reference books. During the heat of the day the cooling waters of the infinity pool beckon and later the lounging deck is the ideal place to watch wildlife graze through the camp. An expert chef conjures up delicious meals, peppered with local ingredients. Anytime of the day you can help yourself to a cold drink from the bar - be it a crisp white wine, a gin and tonic or sparkling water.

Accommodations
Nine safari bungalows are built on stilts overlooking the floodplains frequented by a myriad of bird and animal life. Mesh screen ceiling to floor walls on all three sides around the bed provides an experience in which you can hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness around you. The focus is on a supremely comfortable bed (organic cotton linen, pillow menu) and a spacious ensuite bathroom with high pressure showers. The décor reflects the region\'s earlier indigenous, hunting and pastoral history, with buffalo horns, explorer\'s maps, Aboriginal art work and fish traps as well as old photos providing a sense of the human heritage of the area. Each room has a cold water thermos, local flora and fauna reading materials, species list and binoculars. There is no internet access, no television or mobile phone coverage. A true escape to your immediate environment.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Bamurru Plains is located on the edge of the Mary River floodplains just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of the 1,980,400 ha Kakadu National Park (about one-third the size of Tasmania). A region of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, Kakadu 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.
Design:
Spacious and cool, each of the nine safari bungalows are built on stilts overlooking the floodplains frequented by a myriad of bird and animal life. Mesh screen ceiling to floor walls on all three sides around the bed provides an experience in which you can hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness around you. The alarm clock in the morning is the call of Magpie Geese, after whom the camp is named, as the orange light of dawn spreads across the floodplain, all audible and visble without having to leave your bed!
