New Luxe Lodge to Open in Northern Territory

Here's a reason to head down under this spring (or, since the seasons are reversed over there, autumn): Half-way between Darwin and World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, Wildman Wilderness Lodge, will open its doors to visitors in April.

The new property has 10 cabins (habitats) with fixed structures and 15 luxury safari tents. Five of the safari tents have extra beds (great for families).

Guests can enjoy a wide variety of activities from a sunrise billabong cruise or a day’s touring of Kakadu to a walking tour of the surrounding wetlands or barramundi fishing safari. Guests with a particular interest such as photography or bush walking can request a special interest program which will be tailor-made to meet their individual needs.

The lodge is a two-hour drive or 30-minute flight from Darwin. Cool detail: The lodge is being hailed as one of Australia’s biggest recycling projects, since the original structure of the main lodge and habitats were relocated from the disused Wrotham Park Station Lodge in Queensland.
