The Hide at Bamurru Plains
Raised 6 metres above the ground in the tree canopy overlooking the Mary River floodplain, The Hide is the ultimate eyrie from which birdlife and other wildlife can be observed undisturbed in their natural habitat.
The 24m2 screened platform allows photographic or ornithological groups as well as individuals a unique perspective on this fragile environment. Guests will have a 360º view of the floodplain, canopy and background woodland with adjustable flaps to allow cameras and binoculars to be focussed on the surrounding wildlife, birdlife and floodplains. A Nikon Prostaff Fieldscope has been fitted for maximum visibility.
With a picnic hamper, a selection of premium wines, a bird book, binoculars and a two way radio to stay in touch, spend a few hours enjoying a romantic lunch and afternoon siesta in The Hide - the sounds and sights of the floodplain will provide background 'music'.
Feeling adventurous - perhaps spend a night in The Hide! After enjoying a beautiful chef-prepared three course dinner in the main lodge, head out to The Hide, spotlighting nocturnal floodplain wildlife on your way. Tune your senses to the sounds of the bush at night, listen for the call of a Barking Owl or the snort of a buffalo before slipping into your deluxe swag for a night in this private treehouse away from civilisation and the worries of the world. A 7:30am pick-up the next day has you back at the main lodge in-time for breakfast.
