A magnificent week spent with great management and staff. This really is a once in a lifetime experience. The food is restaurant standard and more, with fresh mud crabs each night. On top of the great food, there is the excitement of catching fish!! The guides including Glenn, Pete, Jamis and Clinton were so helpful and friendly. If Clinton learnt... More

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

Returned to Clearwater for my second visit with my son chasing the elusive Barra. Our guide Clinton Rioli didn't let us down. My son caught a cracking 114cm barra in the first hour and things just got better with threadfin salmon over 100cm regularily landed. Topped the day off with two massive mud crabs. Back to the lodge for fish... More

To say I was dumbfounded by the excellent hospitality & quality of the fishing is an understatement. From the moment my friend & I arrived & were picked up the local airport, we were made to feel special. The owner, Michael & his family who run this unique establishment should be commended for giving 5 star service in such a... More

We really enjoyed our time at Clearwater. Michael and Kerry met us with enthusiasm and settled us into our accomodation that was neat and clean. The bar and eating area views out onto the water with the occasional baby buffalo lawn mower passing by. I found the meals exceptional and was suprised to find they have an excellent wine list....

Caught just under 200 fish including metre barras, thredies and jeweys. Can't wait to do it all again. Very professional and a great crew. Special thanks to Clint for the... More

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
