Cicada Lodge

Subtle luxury in the bush.


Cicada Lodge, your private sanctuary from which to embrace the ancient landscapes and Indigenous culture within the iconic Nitmiluk National Park.
Nightly rates are inclusive of a Welcome Drink on Arrival, Sunset Drinks and Canapés, and a Continental Breakfast.
Cicada Lodge is designed for the sophisticated traveller looking for an authentic Indigenous and natural Australian “experience-of-a-lifetime,” in the heart of Northern Australia’s Timeless North. A sanctuary of elegant comfort, the Lodge provides a level of excellence in accommodation, service and dining.
Nitmiluk Gorge is the centrepiece of Nitmiluk National Park, and comprises a system of 13 immense gorges carved over the millennia by the Katherine River through the ancient stone country of the region. More than a location of beautiful landscapes, the gorges hold great cultural value for the Jawoyn people. For these traditional owners, Nitmiluk refers to a cicada dreaming place – the place where the spirits of creation abide.
