The space
Situated on a 2 acre property with tropical surrounds, Freshwater Retreat is so secluded and private it feels like you're staying off the grid when in fact you're only 2 minutes from the Nightcliff foreshore, Darwin's famous markets the city and airport! You get the best of both worlds - you're in nature but close to all the town action! The property features a large turtle bond, billabong full of local birdlife, secure crocodile enclosure with little crocs, tropical gardens and walkways, large courtyards and outdoor entertaining spaces.
