AS GOOD AS IT GETS
Hard to describe this place with words. Well exceeded any expectations I had. A truly remote and untouched paradise, this place really is second to none if your looking to experience the NT properly. Big thanks to Tim, Jamie and the Tiwi Island Retreat for an unreal weekend that wont be forgotten.

TIWI NT PARADISE
Unreal!! Spent 3 days 2 nights at the Tiwi Retreat with a group of friends. The flight over was amazing with beautiful views. Fishing experience was awesome. The boat had all the comforts and the Skipper was great, helpful and informative, and made sure we were onto the fish. We indulged in amazing meals and we were fed like kings everyday. Relaxing by the pool, the serenity, it all was refreshing and good for the soul.
Thank you for the best few days!

TIWI DREAMING
Where do I start. I am a Darwin born and bred local and I could have sworn the NT was out of surprises for me! Just 20min by plane across turquoise waters of the Beagle Gulf had us arriving at paradise. Welcomed with cocktails by the friendly staff and checked into our waterfront poolside accomodation, cold air-cons and very trendy decor!

We were away on a company Christmas party with a group of 15. Festive Spirits were high and with out anytime wasted we went straight out on the high speed fishing cat for our first mission. The Goldie fishing is the best I have ever seen and out wide the variety of fish we caught was hard to keep track of, the northern side of the Tiwi islands is truly un-fished and untouched country!! The beach side infinity pool is a great place to spend the afternoons with a cold beer and welcome the magical colors of a Tiwi sunset!

I can’t commend the efforts of the hospitable staff enough, Timmy, Kate, Jamie did not stop fussing over us all weekend making the experience that bit more special. The food was world class from chili mud crab to whole deep fried golden snapper, roast lamb, scotch fillet, gourmet buffalo chili sausages and the entrees 5 class!! Thank you so much Tiwi Island Retreat! We will be back next year for sure!!!

TIWI TRIP GOLD
Jesus what a trip – this is as close to the true territory experience you could ever get with all creature comforts. Dirt air strip, little plane, big powered cat and plenty of thumping goldies, access to a nice deserted stretch of beach by ATV, access to some brilliant Barra fishing from a little tinny in the protected waterways right next to the resort, coming back to the base camp for a cold beer and a dip in the amazingly coloured light lap pool followed by fresh fish dinner and buffalo scotch fillets cooked by Timmy were just spot on. Highly recommended experience coming from a territory born local. Thanks for the hospitality Timmy and Jamie – deadset legends.

WHAT A PLACE
What a trip! The retreat was everything we’d hoped for and more. The accommodation far exceeded expectations…clean, spacious, air-conditioned and very comfortable. The pool is outstanding…very hard to beat a relaxing beer on the lounges watching the sun go down! Staff were terrific & looked after all our needs. But the highlight was getting out and about….whether by boat or chopper we experienced a part of Australia everyone should see…its spectacular! Plenty of fish were caught, and a few eaten too! I thoroughly recommend a trip to Tiwi Island Retreat!
