Unique Sleeps: Amazing hotels hand picked by Expedia Experts. Wildman Wilderness Lodge, Northern Territory
Are you too posh to pitch a tent? Want to experience the Outback but not keen on spending the night in the great outdoors? Wildman Wilderness Lodge is your answer. Located 170 km drive south of Darwin, most of which is on the sealed Arnhem Highway, the lodge is a fantastic base for exploring the Mary River Wetlands and Kakadu National Park. It’s an easy drive down from Darwin, so head out early and stop along the way at Spectacular Jumping Crocs on the Adelaide River, with a pizza lunch at Purple Mango Café and Brewery, and still have plenty of time to enjoy the lodge’s infinity pool and large terrace deck looking straight out at the bush. The lodge itself dates back to 2011, with much of the main lodge building transported and repurposed from a station in Central Far North Queensland. Sustainability plays a big role in the lodge, which has a commitment to being low impact on its environment.
