Discover the Top End’s rich angling experiences and remote fishing hot spots with Wild Bush Luxury

image006 (1)The Top End’s wet season is upon us which means Wild Bush Luxury’s Bamurru Plains property is once again preparing to transition its luxury camp into an exclusive fishing lodge for the prime angling season between February and April.

Bamurru Plains’ renowned fishing packages offer eager anglers access to the camp’s first-class private fishing areas and the opportunity to catch prize Barramundi with a striking Australian backdrop, along with comfortable lodgings from $2,350 per person twin share for 3 night/2 day package.
Located on the Northern Territory’s Mary River Floodplains, the privately-owned Bamurru property offers a fishing experience which is second to none in Australia, by combining touches of luxury and supreme comfort, with some of the best and rarest angling opportunities in the country.  image008
The camp is uniquely located on the lower reaches of the Sampan Creek, giving guests private access to the river. The mouths of these creeks, including Swim, Love and Carmor Creek, regularly produce Barramundi on spring tides between February and April, some of which are over a metre in length. For a unique and thrilling fishing experience, guests can also jump aboard a Bamurru Heli-fishing adventure for even greater access to the finest Barramundi in the Top End region.
A highlight for any fisherman at Bamurru is an exclusive fishing trip on the Swim Creek floodplain by airboat - a signature experience for guests at the property. The camp's airboats are fitted with casting decks to maximise the experience of fishing the floodplain in spots that are only available to camp guests.
Australia’s most famous and greatest sports fish, the Barramundi, are plentiful in all of Bamurru’s fishing locations. Armed with the right gear and led by experienced guides to the Top End’s secret fishing spots, fisherman will have the opportunity to catch the biggest and the best of Australia’s Barramundi offering.
All fishing safaris are directed by Bamurru property manager John Cooper, a professional fisherman with a variety of fishing titles to his name, including winning the coveted NT Barra Classic title, arguably the most iconic Barramundi fishing tournament in the country. John will also be one of the expert guides during Bamurru’s fishing season and is looking forward to sharing his tips and local insights with budding anglers.
In keeping with Bamurru’s environmental sustainability ethos, anglers use lures, landing nets, soft plastics and flies to target the Barramundi and, although a fish or two is kept for the dinner table, most of the catch is released back into the waters.
Bamurru’s fishing safaris are distinct in the way they combine incredible fishing with an unforgettable luxury wilderness lodge experience in the breathtaking and naturally diverse surrounds of the Northern Territory’s Top End. After a day on the water,  guests image013can relax in comfort at the lodge with a cold beer or chilled wine and delicious food.
Each of the property’s nine safari suites is designed to blend with the surrounding savannah bush, and offer spectacular views over the floodplains to expose guests to the wildlife and striking landscapes around them. The raised suites are also fitted with all of the creature comforts necessary for a supremely comfortable stay amidst their angling adventures.
Bamurru Plains is offering three to six day Floodplain and River Fishing Packages between 5 February and 28 April 2014 from $2,350 per person twin share for a 3 night/2 day package. Prices are inclusive of twin share accommodation, all meals and beverages (beer, wine and soft drinks) and daily guided fishing on a shared or private basis with up to 4 anglers per boat.
For groups of three a second room will be provided (1 twin + 1 single safari bungalow). In the event there is a request for single rooms, a single occupancy surcharge of 25% applies.
Bamurru Plains safari camp is located on 300 square kilometres of private buffalo station, on the floodplains of the famous Mary River System on the western boundary of Kakadu National Park. The camp is just a 3 hour drive from Darwin with upgrades to a 25 minute charter flight also available. The charter flight covers some of the most spectacular wetlands in the world while travelling to Bamurru Plains, which is a member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia.
