Encircled by the coffee-coloured waters of a meander on the Victoria River and rugged hills inscribed with Aboriginal rock art, this homestead has 12 en-suite rooms located by the vast living areas of the homestead.
Guests can make use of the swimming pool, main verandah and dining room. Dinners are informal and the menu relies heavily on the two exceptional products of the property, namely fresh barramundi (a ferociously fighting game fish) and organic prime beef from the 7000 Brahman-cross cattle.
Local fauna species also include wallabies, dingoes, wild buffalo, a myriad of native and migratory birds, fish and the omnipresent crocodile. Learn some real Aussie bushcraft, from cracking a bullwhip to roping cattle from on board a 'bull catcher' - a stripped down Toyota with rubber tyres mounted on the front to deflect horns. Alternatively, there are tours of Aboriginal art sites, boat cruises down the gorge, bushwalks, bird and wildlife-watching or travel to scenic vantage spots to sketch or paint.
Enjoy a fantastic helicopter ride to several large freshwater swimming holes and waterfalls high up on the escarpment away from the crocodiles.
