Lake Bennett is a fresh water lake with amazing birdlife and wildlife. There are no saltwater crocodiles in the lake so it is a beautiful place to swim.

Lake Bennett is a fresh water lake with amazing birdlife and wildlife. There are no saltwater crocodiles in the lake so it is a beautiful place to swim. Bring your canoe or kayak and go for a paddle for bird watching, fishing and a swim. I have a canoe, stand up paddle board and a kayak available for no extra cost. 

Lake Bennett Resort (can't be seen or heard from my place) is close by, 10 minutes by water or 5 minutes by road. The resort has food, drink and entertainment. The town of Batchelor is 20 minutes away for fuel and food supplies. Batchelor is the gateway to Litchfield National Park. 

Camping on my property requires campers to be fully self contained with their own camping gear and toilet/shower. Pets are welcome but they must be controlled so they do not harm any wildlife. 

Plenty of firewood is available but you must be very careful during the fire season. Some camping locations are only accessible by 4 wheels drive, however some locations are accessible by 2 wheel drive via dirt tracks. 

Activities include: Swimming, paddling, fishing, sailing, bird watching, photography, bush walks, mountain biking easy to very hard.

It was a really relaxing stay. Greg is super friendly and he let us use his pontoon boat during our stay. Lots of fun times were had on the boat. Will definitely be back if we are back in the area. High recommend.

Had a great night staying here. Greg was a great host giving us a little tour of camping spots and letting us use his kayak/canoe to go exploring.
Beautiful spot for a quiet getaway with the Lake Bennett Resort 2km down the road or a 10 minute paddle if you want a meal.
We’ll definitely be back!
