Location: Australia - Northern Territory
Situated near the aboriginal community of Maningrida, some 186 miles northeast of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory, is the unique Arnhemland Barramundi Nature Lodge. The lodge caters primarily to anglers seeking an incredible remote sportfishing experience and has exclusive access to six Arnhemland rivers, stretches of inland lagoons, and a vast expanse of untouched coastline. The barramundi is king here but the whole range of Top End species, including threadfin salmon, mangrove jack, snapper, coral trout and queenfish, can be targeted. Fishing is from comfortable 20-ft sportfishers piloted by knowledgeable, experienced guides. The season in this remote part of northern Australia spans the calendar from March to December. The comfortable, purpose-designed main lodge houses the bar, dining area and kitchen. A cluster of four secluded cabins overlooking the Liverpool and Tomkinson River Valleys are large, breezy, safari-style structures with spacious bathrooms. Sumptuous meals of the house include ample fresh fish and the fabled Top End mud crab. Guests may also experience Aboriginal eco-cultural tours led by locals from the Maningrida community.
