About Us


Escape to a remote, natural paradise where you’re completely off the grid and anything is possible. At Matt Wright’s Tiwi Island Retreat, the rugged beauty and untouched wilderness of the Top End gets under your skin, transporting you straight into relaxation mode. There are very few places left on earth that are so untouched with thriving marine life and sunsets of the most electric saturations you must see to believe.

Relaxed BEach Shack VIBE

Design influenced by a relaxed beach shack vibe, the retreat features two luxury safari tents, ten ensuited ocean rooms and eight coastal style rooms with shared shower and toilets – there is a style of accommodation for everyone. The retreat restaurant Locale serves the most incredible ocean to plate cuisine from chilli mud crab to barramundi wings, dhufish and fresh tuna sashimi and the impressive oceanfront pool is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and take in the pristine paradise.

World class fishing adventures

Simply relax and enjoy the exclusive beachfront location or try your hand at the retreat’s world class fishing adventures, Indigenous cultural tours, and unique wildlife encounters. Our packages have been designed to offer you the very best of the Tiwi Islands. You have the option to opt in or opt out of the all-inclusive activities or customise your stay by booking additional activities such as a Heli-Adventure or Extended Cultural Tour. Tiwi Island Retreat acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present, and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation; we are proud to work closely with the traditional owners of the Tiwi Islands to honour their land and culture in everything we do.
