Bamurru Plains is located on Swim Creek Station, a 300 sq km coastal buffalo pastoral property near Point Stuart in the Mary River Region. The property encompasses a variety of habitat including vast river frontage, coastal floodplains, savannah woodland and paperbark swamps. The station is 10kms from Kakadu National Park's western boundary (100kms from Jabiru in Kakadu) and just over 100 kms east of Darwin.
Bamurru Plains is a 20 minutes charter flight by light aircraft from either Darwin or Kakadu Airport - we can arrange single engine aircraft, helicopter or private 4WD road transfers. Please enquire for details.
The 20 minute charter flight from Darwin covers some of the most spectacular wetlands in the world and lands at Swim Creek Station Airstrip. One of our staff will be there to greet you and transfer you by road to Bamurru Plains, a journey time of approximately 20 minutes (this road transfer is included). Flying time to Swim Creek Station Airstrip from Jabiru in Kakadu National Park is approximately 25 minutes.
Getting there - By road
Bamurru Plains is a 3 hour drive from Darwin (the first hour and three quarters is on sealed tarmac road, the last hour and a quarter are on unsealed public and station roads). The drive from Jabiru in Kakadu National Park will take 2 1/2 hours, again on part unsealed roads. Please note that if you are self-driving to the property you are required to wait for one of our staff at the main entrance to the property. A staff member will escort your vehicle on to the property where it will remain parked at a suitable location and you will then transfer on to a Bamurru Plains 4WD for the remainder of the journey into camp. There is no public vehicle access through to the lodge of Bamurru Plains.
