Welcome to Tiwi Island Retreat

The Top End’s premier holiday destination

Often referred to as the islands of smiles, the Tiwi Islands is home to Tiwi Island Retreat.  Located on one of the world’s most remote destinations, the South West coast of Bathurst Island.

Visiting Tiwi Island Retreat is a truly unforgettable experience.  At Tiwi Island Retreat we understand that our guests love getting off the beaten track and away from the crowds to experience unique, pristine environments, activities and culture. From relaxing by the pool to amazing outback adventures, world renown fishing and Indigenous art and cultural tours we offer something for everyone.

Tiwi Island Retreat was originally established as a barramundi fishing lodge, so it is set up with shared shower and toilet facilities, and the rooms are small ranging from 9 square metres to 14 square metres. Each room has been refurbished in a beautiful and simple coastal style with crisp linen, towels, and air-conditioning.

There are 10 rooms at the main retreat lodging and 8 rooms at the Bathurst lodging which is a 25 – metre walk from the main retreat lodging. There is also a shared shower and toilet facility at the main retreat lodging as well as the Bathurst lodging, with no more than a 10-metre walk from each room to a shower and toilet facility.

The Retreat has a 12-metre pool, licensed bar, and restaurant with an a la carte menu along with the range of activities that can be booked during your stay.

You can book the Room Only Rate or an All-inclusive Package – we have a minimum two-night stay for both options.

We cannot wait to welcome you to Tiwi Island Retreat! 


Escape the crowds and experience the pristine natural beauty and unique adventures available on one of the world’s most remote islands at Tiwi Island Retreat.
