Outback luxury in the Northern Territory

Outback luxury in the Northern Territory

The latest in outback luxury is set to lure travellers off the beaten path into Australian’s Northern Territory with the upcoming opening of the Wildman Wilderness Lodge, halfway between Darwin and the Kakadu National Park.

A two-hour drive or half-hour flight from Darwin, the state’s capital, the lodge has been hailed as one of Australia’s biggest recycling projects, with the original structure and accommodation – or ‘habitats’ – having been relocated from a disused property in Queensland.

Guests aiming to experience the best of the region’s landscapes and wildlife can choose to stay in private cabins, or opt for luxury safari tents, which will allow them to feel closer to the environment. The family-friendly accommodation includes tents that are specially kitted out for those with kids, plus a central, open-plan lodge that serves the best of seasonal Australian cuisine.

The air-conditioned lounge bar offers an opportunity for guests to relax after a long day enjoying one of the many outdoor activities, from walking the nearby wetlands, to touring Kakadu, to barramundi fishing safaris. Those with special interests such as photography or bush-walking can also enjoy specifically tailored itineraries.

Opening packages available until 30th November 2011 include a two-night Wildman Escape from ?298 pp and a three-night Wildman Kakadu Adventure from ?590 pp. www.wildmanwildernesslodge.com.au
