3 night luxury accommodation and meals. This price varies based on accomodation availability and configuration (couple or family). Please enquire for an accurate price for your couple or family group booking experience.

Please note: Our prices are not as low as they could be, because we DO NOT ask our Indigenous partners for a reduces rate, or for a commission to be taken out of the asking price for their products. We beleive in paying our Indigenous partners their full asking price because we understand what the true value is of their products, and we aim to support them in reaching their full economic potential, where possible.

Wakaj, meaning "The coming together of family" is a very unique experience provided by Uncle Mervyn from Mabu Buru Tours.

There'll be a camp-style billy with boiling water for your tea and coffee to go perfectly with your freshly made damper and locally harvested bush honey!
