When you think of idyllic island retreats, locations like the Maldives and Ibiza come to mind but it’s time to add a little known hidden gem called Bremer Island to that list.
Banubanu Wilderness Retreat is located on Bremer Island, just a 15-minute flight from Gove Airport in the waters off Nhulunbuy in East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. East Arnhem Land is known for its pristine beaches, abundant sea life, lush tropical surrounds and its rich Yolngu culture.
Banubanu is an eco-sensitive beach retreat built in partnership with the Yolgnu people to ensure guests experience the natural wonders of the area and appreciate the rich history and culture of the Yolngu people.
Things move at a pretty slow pace at Banubanu…take some time to chill, reflect, go fishing, bird watching, beach combing, interact with the local Indigenous people; reconnect with nature…with no wifi, it’s the perfect time for a device detox.
For the more adventurous there is 4WD touring, fishing tours, crabbing and snorkelling. The surrounding region offers stunning scenic walks and is home to native wildlife, bird life and turtles. Oh yeah and all the food eaten is caught locally and is cooked to perfection!
