Clearwater Island Lodge

Lot 288 Pirlangimpi Melville I…
Darwin NT, Australia

With endorsements from celebrities such as Rex Hunt and Andrew Ettinghausen, and exclusive use of miles of bountiful waters, it’s no wonder that Clearwater Island Lodge has built itself a reputation as Australia’s No. 1 sportfishing lodge.

Situated at Garden Point (Pularumpi) on the Tiwi Islands, just north of Darwin, Clearwater Island Lodge overlooks the magnificent Aspley Straight. Here, you will not only experience stunning fishing locations, you will also be left awe-struck by the area’s natural beauty. These waters are home to over 52 species of fish. You will also get to see crocodiles, sea turtles and dolphins – as well as exotic animal life such as wallabies, parrots, eagles, flying foxes and scores of varieties of water birds.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and choose between two types of package:

- An “obsessive” angler’s dream of pure fishing and lodging;
- “Weekender”, “Explorer”, and “Residential” packages, which combine fishing, lodging, and tours.

Fishing tours will give you a full day on the water with a professional guide, targeting the infamous Barramundi as well as 52+ other species of fish. You will have the chance to fish with lures, fly, or bait, and you can also experience bluewater, reef, and estuary fishing. This is what fishing the Northern Territories is all about.

Cultural tours will allow you to experience what life is like on the ancient Tiwi islands. Explore the best swimming holes, check out indigenous art, and experience the marine way of life of the Tiwi people, sampling Spearing Crab and gathering Mud Mussels.

Whichever package you go for, you will be accommodated in comfort, in single, double, or twin bedrooms. All meals are provided, as are snacks during your trips and your airfare between Darwin and Melville Island. All linen, towels, and toiletries are supplied, and you will also be able to enjoy a complimentary laundry service

About the Charter Operator

Clearwater Island Lodge
Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia
Member since October 2015
Located on the Tiwi Islands north of Darwin, Clearwater Island Lodge has access to some of the richest waters in Austraila. The lodge and its guests have exclusive permission from the Tiwi people to fish these waters, putting them in the enviable position of having an entire, unexploited fishery all to themselves. It's no wonder angling celebrities Rex Hunt and Andrew Ettinghausen agree that this is possibly the best sportfishing lodge in all of Australia. Not only are the local waters home to Barramundi all year round, they also house over fifty other species of fish, which inhabit the local estuaries, reefs, and blue waters. If that wasn't enough, the spacious lodge also offers air conditioned rooms and a spa. What are you waiting for?
