Need to get away from it all? Well, there is one hidden spot in Australia, untouched by development, where life runs as it always has, where the empty beaches stretch forever, fringed by swaying palms. The Tiwi Islands are paradise on earth and we invite you to drop the worries of the modern world and retreat to this natural wonderland.
Start your trip by spending two nights in the tropical city of Darwin. Sitting on the traditional lands of the Larrakia people, looking out over the Timor Sea and its cosmopolitan, international blend of people makes Darwin a riot of colour and activity. Cultures combine to create wonderful fusion in the food and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
From there it is a short but unforgettable plane ride to paradise. The Tiwi Islands are the ultimate escape from the modern world. For the next two nights, you will relax in your beachside cabin, staring out over the glittering Timor Sea, spending your time how you want to. If you want to head out for Australia's finest fishing, no problem, or if long walks in the untouched wilderness is your thing, it is all here for you. The indigenous culture of the Tiwi islanders also makes for some fascinating and immersive tours. With ice-cold cocktails on arrival, you might just decide that this is the way to continue and just completely relax on the beach with a cold drink in hand.
However you choose to spend your time here, we know it will be a retreat that will create incredible memories.
