EXTRAORDINARY THREE DAYS

We have had an extraordinary three days with you learning about the Island and its natural and human occupants. We had no idea about the cultural significances of the various sites and customs and have found this new knowledge deeply moving. It was a privilege to meet Laklak also. Thank you so much.

DUNCAN WELGEMOED’S FIVE COURSE LUNCH

(Background: Banubanu invited renowned Chef Duncan Welgemoed from Africola Restaurant in Adelaide to do a 5 course grazing lunch for 11 lucky locals.)

Flew out from Nhulunbuy for lunch today. What a memorable experience. World renowned chef Duncan Welgemoed, what a great down to earth bloke. Great service and incredible food. Thank you to Helen, Trevor, Duncan, Nikki, Camile & helpers. Glorious, please do this again.

ESCAPE FROM SYDNEY WINTER

My four day escape from Sydney winter at Banubanu has been the most relaxing and easy experience. I’ve enjoyed great food, wine , activities and company. Nothing was a problem – not even soft boiled eggs, horseradish or private fishing. It was great to be a castaway for a couple of days and switch off from the world. I’ll definitely recommend Banubanu to my friends and hope to come back again myself soon.

PERFECT WAY TO END OUR TRIP

Three days here was the perfect way to end our trip of travelling through NT and unwind before our long journey home to California! Beautiful island, not to mention the beautiful people in the community, I was very skeptical of eating fish the entire time of our stay (as I don’t eat fish) and I have to say the fish I ate was outstanding. If I had expectations for fish, they would have been exceeded! Thanks Banubanu.

Beautiful island, wonderful people, great conversation, good food – fabulous three days. Thank you Trevor & Brian for a wonderful time (and Penny too of course)!

HEAVEN

Part of the journey is to allow this place to touch you spiritually, words fail to express what the heart feels, my regret is that our stay was for such a short time. Many thanks to Trevor, Brian and Laklak for allowing me to be witness to a small part of your world. A magical time to be had – heaven. Congratulations on your achievement.

What a unique experience !! Trevor & Brian bent over backwards to fit us in & show us Bremer Island – Laklak, the homelands, the beaches, the ecology. Thank you both a wonderful, wonderful place.
