Basic rooms and facilities but clean and comfortable. Fishing, food and service all great. I have been four times and it the fishing has always been fantastic. The guides really know their stuff and cater well for all standards of fisho's. I will keep going back. Max

My wife, son and I had three days at this Island paradise three weeks ago. What a life changing experience. The staff, the accommodation and don't forget the food.

I travelled to Clearwater Lodge with my two 11 year old sons. I have been going to other fishing lodges in the general area for the past 7 or 8 years and I have to say, Clearwater was by far the best. Easy access from Darwin, easy access to the boats and the fishing, large guestrooms with air-conditioning and bar... More

I just got back from 2 days at The Lodge with a fairly large group (about 20). All from our group had a great experience. The highlight for me was the hospitality offered from day break until stumps from the genuine crew. Nothing was too hard. The balance of capturing the natural beauty of this pristine location with just a... More
