Peppers Seven Spirit Bay is a total wilderness experience. Situated on the Cobourg Peninsula, in Australia's Northern Territory, Peppers Seven Spirit Bay is found within one of the most magnificent and untouched tropical areas in the world. The Cobourg Peninsula is part of Aboriginal Arnhem Land, where entry is by permit only and extremely limited. Your adventure to this remote wilderness region begins with a 45-minute scenic flight in a light aircraft, traveling north-east from Darwin over Van Diemens Gulf to the Cobourg Peninsula. On arrival at Vashon Head, Midjari private airstrip, your host will greet you and transfer you to the lodge by safari vehicle.
Just as tribal ancestors were inspired by the land so many thousands of years ago, Peppers Seven Spirit Bay will touch your soul and inspire your sense of adventure. The Parks conserve a mosaic of sandy beaches, dunes and associated coastal grasslands, mangroves, rainforest patches, swamps, lagoons, coral reefs, sea grass meadows and rich marine life. Fishing in the region is considered excellent all year round. The Cobourg Peninsula boasts a range of fishing environments – creek, open water, reef, gutter, flats and more – each with particular ‘seasons’ and specialties. Peppers Seven Spirit Bay offers both Blue Water Fishing and Estuary Fishing.
THE LODGE - The lodge at Peppers Seven Spirit Bay is barely discernable from the air or water, however has commanding views across the bay. The main building is the focus of activity from which meandering paths weave through the native, open woodland to several clusters of tropical style accommodation units, called 'habitats'. The main building offers a spacious indoor/outdoor dining area, cocktail bar and guest lounge - surrounded by cool, lush lawn and broad decking which overlooks the lagoon pool and the impressive vista of the Arafura Sea.
HABITATS- Guests are privately housed in large, freestanding hexagonal habitats, each secluded in the bush. With only 23 habitats the number of guests is limited. Your habitat features two queen size beds for relaxed comfort, spacious sitting area, tea and coffee making facilities, a refrigerator with cold water and a personal mini-bar stocked to your requirements. At Peppers Seven Spirit Bay neither TV nor radio competes with the sounds of nature. Each habitat has its own private, semi-open 'bathroom in a garden' - a most indulgent and unique bathing experience perfectly suited to the tropical wilderness environment.
DINING- The hub of Peppers Seven Spirit Bay is where guests go to dine and socialise, sharing experiences of their day. Our chef designs your menu daily incorporating the freshest produce, a selection of bush tucker, fresh seafood and meats creating a dining experience suited to the warm climate of Arnhem Land. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included at Peppers Seven Spirit Bay Wilderness Lodge.
