Sample Itinerary

Buffalo at Bamarru Plains

Day 1

Make your way to Bamurru Plains to arrive from 2pm. Enjoy a Wild Bush Luxury welcome and orientation ahead of your afternoon safari and canapé service out on location in Bamurru’s wild and wonderful wilderness. This is big sky country. And there’s an abundance of wildlife to boot. You’ll dine with your field guide and fellow guests sharing stories in front of the open kitchen where you can watch the resident chef create superb native Australian inspired dishes.



Bamarru Water Safari

Days 2-3

Wake to the parade of wildlife emerging to feed on the floodplain before your morning safari takes you deep into the action. Glide over the floodplains and through enchanting paperbark forests on an airboat safari and plunge into the wet-edge pool or indulge in a siesta safari from the comfort of your bed after lunch. Your afternoon adventure may take you on a bush drive or quad bike through savannah country or meandering down the Sampan Creek in search of crocodiles and Great-billed Herons on a river cruise. Enjoy the comfort and civilization of the safari lodge as the sun sets over Bamurru Plains as billions of stars light up the night sky.


El Questro Homestead View

Day 4

Depart Bamurru Plains to make your way back to Darwin and onwards to El Questro in the heart of the Kimberley. Perched on a clifftop with views across the Chamberlain River and Gorge, El Questro Homestead is an oasis of privacy and understated luxury in one of the country’s wildest and most beautiful regions.





Zebedee Springs

Days 5-6

Begin your day with a Bush Culture and History tour or a guided walk through one of the Homestead’s spectacular gorges. This is the best of Kimberley escarpment country. A refreshing swim in a crystal clear water hole awaits at the end of your gorge walk. Look out for resident Rock Wallabies, Johnston Crocodiles and the cheeky Archer Fish while cruising the Chamberlain Gorge. For those in search of a little more romance, enjoy exclusive access to Zebedee Springs. A series of thermal pools and small waterfalls, the springs are an oasis to relax and rejuvenate. Starry skies over the Kimberley are the rooftop for your dinner overlooking the gorge.


Birdlife at El Questro

Day 7

Following breakfast, there may be time for some early morning bird watching. Pheasant Coucals, Dancing Brolgas and the once near extinct Gouldian Finch are just three of the 100 different bird species on El Questro. Depart the Homestead and make your way back to Darwin or beyond.
