Adina Apartment Hotel Darwin Waterfront

Previously known as the Medina Grand, the Adina Apartment Hotel is located on the fringe of Darwin’s waterfront precinct in the heart of the Top End. You can enjoy contemporary yet luxurious living in one of the well-appointed apartments or studios, equipped with all modern amenities and an en suite bathroom, and the majority of rooms afford their own private balcony.

Curve Café and Bar offers an all-day dining menu created from locally sourced produce, while the bar is an ideal place to relax with an Australian glass of red after an action-packed day. Being situated in Darwin’s central hub means there are many boutique shops, restaurants, bars and picturesque parklands all just a short stroll away.

Why we like it

  • Ideally located on Darwin’s waterfront
  • Contemporary and spacious apartments and studios
  • Close to the promenade, boutiques and restaurants
  • Overlooking the recreational lagoon and manmade Wave Lagoon.

Bamurru Plains, Mary River National Park

The focus of a stay at Bamurru is on the environment around the camp and the wildlife and birdlife to which it is home. Each individual safari suite is designed to blend with the surrounding landscape and, as such, exposes guests to the sights and sounds of the bush, whether it is the haunting call of a Whistling Kite, the raucous cacophony from the Blue-winged Kookaburras as dawn breaks or the sound of a full grown buffalo splashing its way through the floodplains. The morning chorus of tens of thousands of Magpie Geese, after whom the camp is named, is an experience in itself.

With no telephones, TVs, CD players or the typical features of a hotel room, the focus is on creature comforts – a supremely comfortable bed, 100% cotton linen, large soft bathtowels, a high pressure shower and lots of space. With just 9 safari suites built amongst the savannah bush fringing the floodplains, the camp is exclusive and guests will not see other tourists on the property.

Why we like it

  • Each safari suite is raised on a timber platform and opens onto a private outdoor space
  • Bamurru Plains offers ‘wild bush luxury’ on the edge of Kakadu National Park
  • Meals in the lodge building are wholesome and innovative with a hint of native produce in many dishes
  • Other facilities and activities include an atmospheric lounge and bar, airboat tours, bird watching, wildlife viewing, river cruises, 4WD safaris, scenic flights and cultural excursions
  • Bamurru Plains is a dedicated fishing lodge between 1st February to 30th April each year
