Crocs and Magpie Geese at Bamurru Plains
I awoke to the sound of kookaburra and cockatoo, with buffalo grazing metres from my terrace. Boarding an airboat, we headed onto the floodplains. Flocks of black and white magpie geese (after which the lodge is named) took to the air in their hundreds. Chicks were hatching, crocodiles lingered, and our guides knew just where to look. We moored amidst a carpet of water lilies for a cold beer before returning to the lodge to laze in the infinity pool and dine on freshly caught mud crab, emu, buffalo and kangaroo pie! A truly unforgettable and Australian experience.
