Yellow Water Havens


The New Yellow Water Havens are the absolute in luxury, nestled deep within Kakadu National Park under a canopy of trees on the yellow Water Billabong high in stilts so you can completely immerse yourself in this wonderland of nature.

The Yellow Water Billabong has a million stories to tell, with over 65, 000 years of indigenous clans in Kakadu it has always given life and is a large part of the community of the Murrabir people of Kakadu providing, food and water by the abundance.

You will experience Australia and Kakadu as you have never done so before in complete privacy in the bosom of Kakadu. The luxury retreats have a BBQ and private bathtub on the large veranda, a large king-size bed, bathroom, dining area and lounge area with daybeds. Each of the five retreats is named after an indigenous animal of the local Kakadu area, themed with personal stories of the local communities throughout the rooms, whether it be on the pillows or walls.

Sustainability was the number one priority when building the retreats so they could be removed with zero footprint. Planet, People then Profit is the strong ethos of Kakadu Tourism. Every item used from furniture to cutlery to the structure is carefully planned out and not one tree has been cut down to accommodate the retreats so that absolute preservation of the land has been maintained. One of the first and most important priorities to the Traditional Owners. All mod cons are still are your fingertips and if you need anything else you are staying within the sprawling property that is Cooinda Lodge Kakadu, which has two restaurants a bar, two resort-style swimming pools, tours, a retail shop and children’s playing area.

Each new Haven will sleep two adults and two children aged 12 and under.
