RECONNECTING WITH NATURE
Wild Bush Luxury's natural experiences are exclusive, using food and environment as a clear way to connect guests with the country that sustains them.
Bamurru's culinary approach combines contemporary Australian cuisine with ingredients native to the surrounding bush; as with all they do at Bamurru, the dining experience aims to inspire and reconnect diners with nature. Favourite ingredients are those that can be sourced from the bush, Finger lime, Lemon Myrtle and Quandong are all local to the area and extremely versatile in the kitchen. On the menu is anything truly Australian from kangaroo skewers to crispy barramundi with finger lime salsa and Quandong ice-cream.
'The Hide' has been designed in true Wild Bush Luxury style. An authentic Australian picnic lunch is packed and you are dropped out at the wildlife observation deck overlooking the flood plains with lunch, bird book, binoculars and bottle of premium Aussie vino in hand!
Pre-dinner canapes are served in the bush, either at a waterhole or out on the floodplain with a classic Top End sunset as background. To follow, expect a three-course dinner, hosted by your field guide. Watch a gourmet chef create his favourite bush spiced duck confit in the open kitchen from your dinner table.
Arkaba has adopted a 'buy local' principle and the head chef uses the very best of South Australia's produce. Meals are based on contemporary Australian cuisine, with a sprinkling of native favourites. Dining is on the outdoor terrace with the ever-changing light and sounds of the bush all around. A firepit in the corner of the garden provides a great spot to retire to after dinner, with a glass of wine or port.
