Looking for a unique bush and beach experience?
Wagait Beach Bush Retreat is a fully self-contained, self serviced 2 bedroom house on a secluded one acre block close to the quiet and picturesque beaches of Wagait Beach and Cox Peninsula.
Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is set amongst natural bushland and tropical gardens. You will see an abundance of birdlife, many wallabies and lots of other native wildlife.
The property is architecturally designed to make the most of our wonderful tropical climate, easy going lifestyle and views of natural bushland.
Guests have a unique opportunity to unwind within close proximity to Darwin. Wagait Beach is an easy 128km drive from Darwin on fully sealed roads or just 15 minutes across the harbour if travelling by ferry. Pickups/transfers from the ferry are available on request.…
Wagait Beach Bush Retreat offers guests the perfect location to escape the humdrum of urban living. With peace and tranquillity in abundance it is easy to forget that the rest of the world exists when you are staying at Wagait Beach Bush Retreat!!!
To keep our wildlife safe, sorry no pets! Wagait Beach is an unspoilt, quiet and friendly rural community - pop approx. 400. Situated on the northern beaches of Cox Peninsula near Mandorah, the Darwin skyline is clearly visible across Darwin Harbour.
The community is serviced by a two hourly ferry service from Darwin. Harbour crossings take approx. 15 minutes.
Located only 90 minutes(128km) from Darwin on fully sealed roads, driving is recommended so that you have a vehicle to visit the local sights.
Wagait Beach is a popular location for deep sea fishing. There is fantastic fishing from the wharf and beaches or launch your boat from either the Mandorah or Bynoe Harbour boat ramps if you prefer to fish the harbour, inlets and tidal creeks.
Fishing, bird-watching, exploring WW2 relics, beach-combing or just old fashioned relaxing are some of the activities available to you at Wagait Beach. Snooze in the hammock, watch the sun set from the deck overlooking the pool and bushland or cool off in the pool with a coldie before lighting the BBQ to cook your catch of the day. The local shop is nearby for those who prefer some-one else to do the cooking!!!
Take a drive and explore. See magnetic termite mounds, wetlands prolific with birdlife and a natural spring hidden in a tiny pocket of rainforest. You may spot a wild brumby or two. Explore a myriad of bush tracks that lead to unspoilt beaches and great fishing.
For WW2 buffs visit the wreckage of the 'Milady', a crashed US Liberator bomber, the remains of the submarine cable at West Point and the remnants of many WW2 gun turrets scattered along the coast.
