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.
Cicada Lodge opened in 2013 and delivers the highest standards of non-intrusive, world-class service in a modern architect-designed lodge. The Lodge is elegantly furnished in a contemporary, sophisticated style fusing international, modern Australian and Indigenous design elements. Facilities include an outdoor pool, restaurant, room service, concierge and airport transfers available on request.
300km south of Darwin along the Stuart Highway and 32km from Katherine town centre, the Lodge is nestled in natural bush, high above the ancient waterways of the Katherine River system.
Cicada Lodge is a joint venture between the Jawoyn people and Indigenous Business Australia (IBA), bringing a new element of quality, service and authenticity to Katherine and Australia’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.
