Cicada Lodge to open

Article content

27 November 2012 by Luke McCormick

The Northern Territory's newest luxury property, Cicada Lodge, is due to open its doors on the 01 March 2013 to coincide with the start of the new season.

Currently under construction, the lodge will be situated in Nitmiluk National Park on a ridge overlooking the Katherine River, 300km south of Darwin and 32km from Katherine town centre.

The stylish 18 room-lodge will boast panoramic views of the vast rock country with its abundance of native flora and wildlife, a vista that guests will be able to enjoy from their own private balcony. The central reception and welcome area will have an open deck pool looking out over the Katherine River.

The Lodge's design emphasises and facilitates natural airflow, while blending well with its surrounds, and the panoramic windows help create the visual effect of inviting the outside in.

Cicada Lodge will even celebrate the park's monsoonal climate - seasonal tropical rains ensure the Lodge has access to an unlimited supply of fresh water and the giant 250mm "raindrop" showerheads in every bathroom have been specifically designed to pay tribute to the giant tropical monsoon raindrops.

Furnishings cleverly harness the local Jawoyn People's colours of rich ochres and earthy browns, the orange hues of sunrise and sunset and the muted greens of the Australian bush. Every room will host original indigenous paintings.

Cicada Lodge is a joint venture between the local Jawoyn people and Indigenous Business Australia.
