My younger brother and his son ,( a keen 15 year old fishing fanatic) wanted a holiday with a difference when they came up to Darwin (my home town) for a two week stay . Well being that the only time they could come was January (worst part of the wet) I frantically looked for somewhere that we could have... More

I have had the greatest pleasure of my life to have to tolerate some of the best food ever served to someone who is not a god. The hospitality that Mike, Kerry their family and staff have shown me is as if you had stepped into their private home. My stay has been extended and ongoing which is at odds... More

Clearwater Island Lodge has it all! I have visited there three times and the mind blowing fishing will keep me coming back for many years to come. You see this is my favourite place to fish in Australia and for very good reason. It all starts with that iconic Australian sport fish the barramundi and this place is crawling with... More

Clearwater once again didn't disappoint, Michael Kerri and Dave run one of the few fishing lodges with a real casual and intimate feel. Local indigenous guides who really care and know every inch of the islands teamed with the best creek and blue water options once agin delivered amazing fishing. Where can you catch 18 Barra in a morning plus... More

I recently visited this fishing Mecca with a group of mates, again, and as usual it lived up to its expectations. The area is a great test of your fishing ability but is equally suited to those without much experience. Two of our group had never caught a Barra and left with a decent tally after four days. The guides... More

We travelled to Clearwater Island Lodge as a family group. Three siblings and two spouses who aren't that interested in fishing, but wanted to experience the cultural aspects of the Tiwi Islands. This is only possible by staying in one of the fishing lodges at either Mellville or Bathurst Islands. Clearwater Island Lodge offered a combined Fishing/Cultural package that best... More
