Located in the majestic Mary River National Park Wetlands of the Northern Territory, Wildman Wilderness Lodge is an unforgettable experience, its teeming wildlife and unique tours a world far removed from your own, yet with all the modern comforts of great accommodation, delicious meals utilising local produce and a fabulous wine and beer selection to enjoy at the end of each day.

In 2011 Wildman was awarded Best New Tourism Development at the Northern Territory Tourism Awards. Committed to conservation, Wildman is the ultimate 'recycled resort', and how it came into being is a story on an epic scale. When Wrotham Park (located 300kms west of Cairns) closed in 2009, its infrastructure was dismantled, loaded onto 18 triple road trains and transported 2800kms across Australia. Once unloaded in their new setting on the Mary River Wetlands (with 15 premium Safari Tents added), the buildings formed a new site of sophisticated accommodation: The unique Wildman Wilderness Lodge.

Just a short distance from Darwin and within proximity to the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, rare ad venture is at your doorstep, with a diverse and exciting range of tours on offer. From cruising the Mary River (and spotting a crocodile or two along the way) to exploring Kakadu's Aboriginal heritage, every moment is remarkable. Special interests such as fishing, walking, and photography are also catered for, with tours easily arranged to best suit your needs.

And when the time comes to relax, the main lodge is yours to enjoy with a restaurant, bar, lounge, and swimming pool making it perfect for families, couples, special events and meetings. Wildman Wilderness Lodge comprises of a central lodge, 10 air conditioned cabins ('Habitats') and 15 Safari Tents. Both Options feature an ensuite bathroom and stylish finishes to create accommodation with a touch of luxury in an awe-inspiring environment.

Showcasing the best seasonal produce Australia has to offer, Wildman's delicious array of food and beverages are matched only by the stunning views. For all-day adventures, a picnic lunch makes the perfect take-away.

Inherent in the Wildman experience is the wildlife, with crocodile and birdlife spotting a daily occurrence. A variety of tours are offered to make the most of your stay with tailored, private tours available on request. The Mary River Wetlands are teeming with life.
