I've fished in many remote camps and lodges in Australia and overseas, and without doubt, Clearwater rates amongst the best I have encountered anywhere. Jamis was my guide and in my experience, one of the best in the world - and an accomplished chef to boot!

Great atmosphere, chilled, view to die for. The meals prepared by Jamis was outstanding, very deserving of the Silver Service Award, Darwin restaurants don't compare. Very simple but mind blowing flavours, What he can do with fish is just something you have to experience, and apparently not a bad fishing guide!!!. For a remote outfit had all you'd need for...

Clearwater Island Lodge is Simply the best. 5 trips over 8 years and it's just keeps getting better. Great hosts, great guides and world class fishing. You wanna catch Giant Trevalley in the blue water and Barramundi in the creeks just come here. Super accommodation, great food and great sunsets with a cold beer. Ain't no better.

All I can say is what a place. It feels like your at your best friends house, super relaxing, very friendly, a big couch to fall asleep while watching sport or a movie on Foxtel with your favorite drink in your hand. This is all before you have cast a fishing line! The guides are like having your own aboriginal... More

I have fished fished extensively across the NT, with Kimberley's, Arnhem Land, Mary River, etc etc, but this was my second trip to Munupi. The reason I will always return is the variety of fishing available. All the other resorts concentrate on Barra and that's fine. This week we caught Barra, thread fin, mangrove jack, finger mark , cod, barracuda,... More

I had a wonderful time with friends. Great guides and friendly people. 3 solid days of fishing and special dining experience. Not to mention the beautiful sceneries, especially the sunset. Strongly recommend to those who love fishing and also those who never fish before. This will get you to start loving it. Thank you Michael and Kerri! Vincent

Four great days of fishing with guides who knew where to take you and where the fish were. They were quick to help, be it how to cast or to retrieve the odd lure from a tree! Every day finished with a superb three course meal, always with fish and mud crab caught that day, and a good range of... More
