About This Trip

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.

Our focus when creating this trip was to discover the most secluded spot in the whole of Australia. While there are plenty of these in the middle of nowhere, we wanted a spot where you could relax in paradise and revel in the natural wonder of the country. When we discovered the Tiwi Island Resort, we knew our search was over. So intensely beautiful, the Tiwi Islands provide that relaxed old-world feel, where nothing has changed for centuries. Surrounded by deep bush, with long, quiet beaches stretching out before you, the retreat is secluded and exclusive without being overly fancy. There is no need to pack a dinner jacket on this one!


We wanted to compliment this escape with a couple of nights in vibrant Darwin, so you had the chance to contrast the Tiwi Island experience by hitting the town and enjoying the food and drink of this incredible tropical city.  


The Tiwi Islands are located off the north coast of Australia, just a 20-minute flight from Darwin. You will fly into Darwin and spend two nights there in stunning waterfront apartments before heading back to the airport for your short flight to the Tiwi Island Resort. After a couple of days in heavenly surroundings, we will transfer you back to Darwin Airport for your onward connection.
