The Jawoyn people invite you to experience the beauty of one of Australia’s most spectacular destinations. To understand and be inspired by the ancient cultures of the traditional owners of the land, to explore the natural wonders of Nitmiluk Gorge, and to relax and revive in the comfort of Cicada Lodge
Cicada Lodge, your sanctuary from which to embrace the ancient landscapes and indigenous culture within the iconic Nitmiluk National Park.
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, just 29kms from the historic township of Katherine, the Lodge provides a level of excellence in accommodation, service and dining.
Cicada Lodge is core to the future of the Jawoyn people. Training programs and employment of the local people across all aspects of the operation are integral to that future. Eco-accredited Indigenous guides run the Gorge cruises and tours providing commentary on the region sharing their knowledge of the local flora and fauna as well, ancient stories creation and Jawoyn life, enabling visitors to embrace a journey of learning and discovery in this spiritual and spectacular part of NT’s Top End.
All 18 rooms of the lodge are air conditioned and feature full length louvered doors to the private balconies, allowing guests the choice of opening their room to the sounds and sights of the native bush or closing them for the cool privacy of their room sanctuary.
Each room has views out across the distinct sandstone country above the gorge – lush gullies full of flora inhabiting giant cracks in the gorge walls, and broad valleys meandering through both the high and low country.
Each room features Indigenous artwork from local artists – the rich colours blending with and complimenting the more modern design and fittings.
The ancient stories within the paintings weave the modern with the traditional to create a unique blend that is Cicada Lodge.
