Wildman Wilderness Lodge4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Highlight was the complimentary early morning billabong boat trip; just peace and tranquility with the crocs lazing about or gently sliding back into the water and the cacophony of birds everywhere. Oh the lodge was amazing too, just add some doors to the bathrooms please! Staying here is a magical experience.
My husband and I spent several delightful days at the Wildman Wilderness Lodge during our recent trip to Australia. Our spacious, well-appointed room contained a beautiful en suite shower and a deck outside our sliding door provided an awesome place to watch Australian sunsets. A walk to the lodge for dinner included sightings of many birds and walibies. The main lodge has several options for entertainment-a beautiful infinity pool, a lounge for cocktails, an outdoor fire pit and deck where we gathered with friends to enjoy a glass of wine, and a restaurant complete with gourmet chef. During our time at Wildman, we also took advantage of the opportunity to take an afternoon excursion on the Mary River where we saw both "freshies" and saltwater crocodiles. Wildman is also located near another billabong and guests can go on nature hikes from the lodge with guides. The hosts of the lodge were warm and personable, visiting with us and attending to every detail to ensure we had everything we needed for a fabulous stay. I highly recommend Wildman Wilderness Lodge to anyone who wants to have a stellar outback experience!!!!
It's so unique experience to stay in Wildman, just like living in the zoo with Wallabies, birds and even crocodies. Tents are African style glamping, so spacious with good view. The first day was all about relax. We saw fire with sunset and enjoyed the indigenous foods, such as buffalo and kangaroo. Then we did some tours, billabong cruise and sundown and Airboat. The airboat is expensive but worthy to see the whole mary river wetland.
This is a nature lovers destination. We went on the home billabong cruise and counted 16 crocs! At the front of our habitat each afternoon there would have been about 10 wallabies and plenty of bird life. The hotel also has free bikes you can use whenever you want. Staff were really friendly. Good wine selection and meals were great. Would definitely return.
I don't know where to start here, there is just too much to complain about. From feeling like not your not invited but I will change you some serious change. Staff are all backpackers which are there. just to extent there time in Aus. Pm meal was fine, although they couldn't wait to get rid of us. I did expect a swist on the cuisine we served, we are in the wilderness. And breakfast was pretty dull, to say the least. The glamp tent fan didn't work as well as I would have liked it, luckily ther was a free standing fan so we could put that next to the bed. Did I mention the frogs in the room, I'm not a frog lover and don't appreciate sharing my environment with them. Partner moved them outside but being territorial, they come back!
This is an expensive premium based property, but did not deliver to our expectations. Whilst the rooms are pleasant, the grout on the floor tiles was falling out, the shower had mould growing up the tiles and there is no service telephone to contact the office. If you need a private toilet the design did not put doors in the bathroom, so open the wardrobe doors! Room air conditioning is pretty average if you want to lie down during the day. he WiFi is only available in the main building which is fine but it does not work well at all. As for the food, it was very poor, the staff whilst friendly, are not well trained in hospitality. our dinner was very disappointing, my barramundi was dried out, over cooked and the version of grilled was fried! Breakfast buffet was almost totally depleted at 9am, my egg white omelette was the worst I have had. My son ordered scramble eggs with tomato and capsicum and a slab of two halves of a capsicum and half a tomato came with it! Everything had a price....certainly not a premium experience and very disappointing. Cicada Lodge sets the international standard in this area.
Awesome sunrise and sunset views. 3 course dinner was good. Breakfast was ok only. The tours are highly recommended, especially the airboat (only during certain periods). The guides were interactive and humorous.
Nice and peaceful location, right in the middle of the wetlands and 1,5 hours from Kakadu National Park. The tours and guides are great, and you can have nice walks all around the structure. For the price you pay, the hotel and services definitely need an update, but overall it's an ok place to spend a couple of days.
Cabin accomodation in a true bush setting, close to Kakadu. Comfortable & aircon. Friendly staff. Great Kakadu tour guided by experienced, passionate guide. Food is good/basic, akin to pub fare. Only criticism; shared the restaurant, bar, pool facilities with the cheaper/larger tent accomodation, including bussed- in day tour groups - would have expected some exclusivity, given the pricey "luxury" adverts. Otherwise, a great wilderness experience.
We stayed here one night while on a group tour. The place is stunning. Chilling in the pool watching wallabies go by is just gorgeous. Meals were beautiful and the staff are dealt lovely too. Not a lot to do and its pretty much the middle of nowhere but if you find a tour that stops here it's definitely well worth it.
