Your stay at Finniss River Lodge includes two guided, on-property outings daily – early morning and afternoon to allow time to enjoy the Lodge and escape the heat in the middle of the day. The Territory is known for its distinctive wet and dry seasons however traditionally there can be six to thirteen seasonal changes throughout the year which makes for an ever-changing landscape and contributes to the uniqueness of each and every tour. At Finniss River Lodge we can take your requests and integrate them seamlessly into a range of exceptionally tailored experiences that are guaranteed to kindle all of your senses.
Join your guide in one of our 5-seater all-terrain vehicles (ATV) as you travel along bush tracks through the cattle property viewing the incredible diversity of flora and fauna that call Finniss River Station their home. The ATV’s cause minimal disturbance to the wildlife and enable you to feel completely immersed in your surroundings.
Appreciate the wildlife, rich history and pastoral practices as you explore the paper bark forests, floodplains, coastline, savannah woodlands and rainforests.
Tread a path amongst the five ecosystems with abundant opportunities to photograph and observe wildlife in their natural habitat. Walking trails are tailored to suit all abilities with tours being conducted in the cool early morning or late afternoons. The Lodge offers a number of short, leisurely walks under shaded canopy’s and for the more adventurous, half or full day treks through more remote and untouched areas of the property.
For guests opting to further immerse themselves in all things station life, there are opportunities to partake in activities such as mustering, observing cattle being drafted for sale in the yards, checking water troughs, feeding poddy calves, working dog displays, delivering supplements or checking fences. There are no set programs here and this is what a signature experience is all about. More than a business, this is a family that truly loves what they do and this is reflected in the livestock.
