Accommodation

Bullo River Station

Bullo River

A new accommodation option at Bullo River Station is a pair of huts which sit along a sandstone ridgeline.  The huts are accessible by helicopter and overlook a lake where buffalo and cattle come to drink. Each hut has a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. Guests can sit on the decking with nothing to interrupt the views at sunset and they offer complete privacy.  Guests can combine staying at the huts with a visit to the Cascades (series of secluded rockpools).

Cooinda Lodge

Vintage Cooinda Lodge

Cooinda Lodge Kakadu Celebrates 50 Years!

In 1964, Kakadu crocodile hunter, Tom Opitz, and his ‘English rose’, Judy, set up the Cooinda Store, effectively starting modern Kakadu Tourism. Over time, the Opitz’s very basic store evolved into a significant tourism enterprise, with the destination now offering an internationally-operated hotel (Cooinda Lodge), camping grounds, Yellow Water Cruises, 4WD Adventure tours, restaurants and other facilities. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Cooinda, guests staying two or more nights at Cooinda Lodge Kakadu will receive a complimentary copy of “An English Rose in Kakadu” to make their visit even more memorable.
