Charles Rawlings-Way, Co-ordinating author, Lonely Planet, named Rum Jungle Bungalows his favourite place to stay in Australia.
Your favourite place to stay?
Rum Jungle Bungalows in Batchelor in the Northern Territory. Named after a nearby uranium mine (which closed in 1971), these tropical units an hour south of Darwin are understated, elegant and perfectly attuned to their environment. Colourful, breezy, contemporary, immaculately clean, great value ... a kind of upmarket motel with tropical gardens, resident butterflies and fresh fruit for breakfast. Next door is Litchfield National Park, where you can cool off under a waterfall.

An excellently presented and appointed boutique establishment. It is rare to find accommodation that has so much character, comfort and personal touch at this price.
Upon arrival speak to Sue for the inside word on visiting nearby Litchfield National Park. Her tips allowed as to visit the park highlights, catching the perfect light at the right time while avoiding the crowds.
Also highly recommend the optional breakfast. It is a delicious multi course event in a great garden setting.
Upon leaving I mentioned we intended to visit the local Territory Wildlife Park on our way back to Darwin and the next thing I know, Sue has produced a map and has also called up the wildlife centre to confirm the special event times.
A very satisfactory and comfortable stay.

I just felt I must send you an email to let you know how much we enjoyed your piece of paradise. The swimming holes you recommended to us were definite stand outs…not to mention your accommodation and sensational breakfasts. Thanks so much for a bundle of good memories. Hopefully, you will have many others finding their way to your door.

Rick and I stayed at Rum Jungle Bungalows in June and were exquisitely surprised, what a hideaway!
A review section on your website could be a good idea!

We just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at Rum Jungle Bungalows. It was very relaxing and the perfect antidote to our normal, busy lives.

We stayed in your wonderful bungalows. Your lovely prepared breakfast will be in our mind for everytime. One day was too short for this lovely place of Earth. We will come to Australia again and have to stay longer at your bungalows.

Dear Oscar and Sue – Thanks for your hospitality. Give a little pat to Oscar. I fell in love with that cheeky little fellow. Hoping you have plenty of guests to fill your delightful place.
Helen B, Templestowe
We would like to say thank you for your hospitality. We just loved the bungalows and especially your delicious breaky. Hopefully we will be back in the not so distant future; you live in a very special part of the world.

Friendly service, excellent prices, great location. I think I could stay there for a week. Looking forward to going back. A real out of town gem one hour from Darwin.
