Kakadu National Park

Mary River Wilderness Retreat is the ideal location to be based and explore.

The retreat runs bus tours of Kakadu each week through Top End Bus Tours - from Darwin, through to Fogg Dam, Corroboree Billabong, the Bowali Visitor Centre, Ubirr Rock, Nourlangie and Litchfield, and to Florence and Wangi Falls.

Set on 900 acres of national park along the Mary River between Darwin and Kakadu, guests will be based at the retreat in a comfortable bungalow with air conditioning, ceiling fans and en-suites (unlike other tours there is no need to pack each day and you sleep in the same bed each night) and meals are prepared by an on-site chef.

The four day itinerary includes a rest day mid-week to ensure guests are able to relax and enjoy the facilities and the local surrounds.
