One Day Barra Fishing Charters
Our One Day Barra Fishing Charters run year round. Depending on what time of year you will be fishing either a billabong, river system or harbour.
With four distinct fishing seasons which include the “Runoff”, the “Dry”, the “Buildup” and the “Wet”. Each season brings an opportunity to catch a barra.
From trolling a river mouth or lillies along a billabong, to casting for barra from a mangrove or coastal creek, catching a barra is a must do when visiting the NT.

One Day Fishing Charters
Coroborree Billabong / Hardies
Corroboree is approximately one hour out of Darwin, while fishing on this picturesque waterway you may have a crocodile cruise past or getting some rays on the bank.
Not only a fishing charter where you can fish for Barramundi or Saratoga it is a wildlife tour as well with the birdlife all through the Corroboree Billabong system.
A bit further down the Arnhem Highway is Shady Camp. It is said to have the world’s most densest population of crocodiles in the world.
At Shady Camp you can fish fresh and salt water sides of the barrage. Depending on tides and season, Charters are either Fresh or Salt Water Exclusively or both.
Shady Camp is a Mecca for Fishing and wildlife.
Leaders Creek / Vernon Islands
One of the most diverse fishing locations within an hour of Darwin is Leaders Creek and the Vernon Islands. In certain seasons and on the right tide you are able to fish for a barra and jewfish in one session.
Offshore at the Vernon Islands you are able to fish for bluewater sport fish including Mackeral, Tuna, Queenfish and Giant Trevally.
