Cicada Lodge taking bookings


Construction on Cicada Lodge, the new luxury accommodation property being developed in Nitmiluk National Park in the Northern Territory's Top End, is on track for a 1 March 2013 opening, with reservations open for bookings.

"The construction is at the point where the property is really starting to take shape – the accommodation wings are up and ready for interior fit out, the reception area is well underway with the pool  and deck already completed,  giving us a real taste of what it will be like to sit here and soak up this amazing destination", said property Marketing Director  Mr Clive Pollack.

"We are on track to present a truly unique property to the market - an exclusive touring program is being developed;  we are in discussion with one of Australia's more unique chefs to develop menus;  and have a few exciting entertainment programs planned for guest who book early in the first few weeks of opening – all of this will be announcied in early November".

Located on a ridge overlooking the Katherine River, all 18 rooms of Cicada Lodge have uninteruppted views out over the surroundng vast rock country and are completely surrounded by native flora and wildlife.  The large open balconies feature floor to ceiling moveable louvres to allow for privacy or to open the balcony competely.

Each room features unique and distinctive artwork from local Top End indigenous artists, many of whom are recognised in galleries around the world. All this artwork is for sale to guests.

The central reception and welcome area features an open deck pool looking out over the Katherine River, a cool fully air conditioned bar and intricate water feature  - the perfect place to relax after a day touring.

Cicada Lodge is located inside Nitmiluk National Park, home to Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge. This deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River draws thousands of visitors to the Jawoyn-owned Nitmiluk National Park each year.

Distinct sandstone country is featured above the gorge, lush gullies full of flora inhabit giant cracks in the gorge walls, and broad valleys meander through both the high and the low country.

This diverse and spectacular landscape is also a cultural landscape, where the Jawoyn people continue to live and work while sharing their culture with visitors to their country.
