Groote Eylandt Sports Fishing

Location: Arnhemland, Kakadu and Arnhem Land

Hours: Daily


Groote Eylandt Sports Fishing offers multi day fishing charters using the latest Shimano equipment and a selection of specific terminal tackle. Target bluewater species like Sailfish, Spanish mackerel and Golden snapper, on the beautiful 25foot Keywest Bluewater vessels, powered by twin 150 horse power Yamahas. Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria offers some of the most diverse fishing grounds in the world, including some 300 square kilometres of prime, virtually unfished water. Four main areas cater for every angling experience: reef, bluewater sportfishing, estuary and fly fishing. When you return from your day out fishing, relax around the pool or in Seagrass restaurant at the lodge and talk to the chef about having your catch cooked and prepared. Accommodation is in waterfront bungalows at Groote Eylandt Lodge, offering spectacular sunset views. The island also has some of the most prolific and best preserved Aboriginal rock art in Australia, with the option to visit sites on request.
