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

It has become an annual trip for myself and a bunch of friends, and every year it gets better. The accommodation and sleeping facilities are basic but is all that is needed. The food, the fishing (the reason we are here), is fantastic. I actually count the days each year, to the next stay at Clearwater Island Lodge. It is... More

We stayed 3 nights and 2 days at Clearwater Lodge on a fishing trip. After flying to Darwin and then a scenic 30 minute flight to the tip of Melville island I had already been treated to some spectacular scenery and was looking forward to getting on the ground.
