Bamurru Plains

The beautiful landscape of Kakadu National Park

Explore floodplains and savannah woodland

A luxury bush camp on the vast floodplains of the Northern Territory, Bamurra Plains is a wonderful way to experience this unique and beautiful landscape. Set within 300km2 of private land to the west of Kakudu National Park, guests will enjoy access to miles of undisturbed coastal floodplains, savannah woodland and paperbark swamps.

Reconnecting with nature needn’t mean going back to basics, and ten safari-style bungalows ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay. Each bungalow overlooks the floodplains and features mesh walls so you can hear, see and almost touch the wildlife and wilderness that surrounds you.

Décor reflects the region’s indigenous, hunting and pastoral history with buffalo horns, explorer maps, Aboriginal art and old photographs adorning the walls. Each bungalow comes with a species list so you can identify the animals that wander past.

The largest Kingfisher suite features a generous living space and enough room for extra beds, making it a great option for adventurous families. With no internet access, TV or mobile signal, switching off has never been easier and you’ll soon find yourself tuning in to the sounds of the bush as you drift off to sleep.

Dining at Bamurru Plains is a real treat, with locally sourced produce used to create a menu that is authentic yet contemporary. Meals are served in the wildlife observation deck and there is a self-service bar which guests are welcome to use.

In this sanctuary of flora and fauna lives a vast, thriving eco system which includes many species of bird hiding in the swamps and savannah woodlands. Enjoy the heights amongst the tree tops when you settle down to an evening in The Hide while those who love to fish are encouraged to embark on a river fishing or airboat fishing excursion.

Sal Salis
Step out of your luxury tent to discover the untouched outback and the Ningaloo Reef – just a few metres off shore with colourful coral and an abundance of resident marine life. Sal Salis is making it possible to discover one of Australia’s best kept natural secrets in an authentic and distinctive way, with 16 wilderness tents nestled in the dunes of the Cape Ranga National Park. Each of the spacious tents sit on wooden platforms and have en suites with a composting toilet and a private viewing deck. The eco-tents are wild camping and lack all the mod cons, however their minimalist style simply adds to their charm. The star attraction of Sal Salis is undoubtedly its access to the reef. Spend your days in the balmy waters exploring the marine life, including encounters with the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. Sitting right off shore the shallow waters mean even children can easily discover this underwater world. If you’re staying between August to October, you may also have the rare and incredible opportunity to swim with passing Humpback Whales. Sal Salis is an ecotourism development and is dedicated to protecting its unique surroundings. The camp has been constructed to cause minimal impact on the environment, almost 100% of the power is generated through solar panels and guests are designated 20 litres of water per person daily for washing. There’s no internet connection or WiFi at the camp, offering guests a rare respite from their busy everyday lives and a chance to truly connect with their surroundings.
