Embrace ancient landscapes and indigenous culture with a stay at Cicada Lodge, an 18 room luxury Eco-Resort located 300km south of Darwin and 32km from Katherine town centre. Sat proudly above the ancient waterways of the Katherine River, this superb natural sanctuary provides guests with world-class service in the most breath-taking of locations, making it the perfect base for sophisticated travellers seeking an authentic Indigenous and natural Australian experience in the Nitmiluk National Park. 

Surrounded by a myriad of outdoor activities, guests can be whisked away on a private tour to explore the hidden gems of this incredible region. Fly to remote locations by helicopter, swim in your very own private clear waterfall and discover remote rock art sites with an Indigenous guide.

If you decide to relax and lounge around the resort you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy lounging beside the outdoor pool, sunset canapés and native Australian food experiences at the in-house restaurant.

Designed with comfort in mind, each of the 18 rooms in this Eco-Resort features breath-taking views across the landscapes above the gorge, which can be enjoyed from the privacy of your own balcony while sipping champagne at sunset. Large louvered doors also allow full indoor/outdoor living, opening the room to the sights and sounds of the surrounding native bush lands.

All rooms feature Indigenous artwork from local artists, rich in colours that compliment the modern and clean design. Relax with a good night’s sleep in a deluxe King Size bed and unwind in the beautifully appointed ensuite bathroom complete with a walk in shower.
