My husband & I welcomed another group of our continuous stream of guests & suggested doing this barra farm as it would be great fun for the kids & easier for us. How wrong we were! Right from the start the owner refused to be upfront with us in regard to prices over the phone but was more than up front after we drove over 45mins out there & he had us there, being extremely rude & totally unprofessional to say the least. Even days later he has refused to acknowledge his failings here & struggles to see how frustrating it was for us to be mis lead & drive along way with a family member in a wheelchair & 4 kids under 4! In the end it was a blessing for us as we have since taken our guests out on our own boat to a prestine billabong where we all had a ball caught heaps of barra (that we got to keep!) & we didn't have to share one rod between ten of us for a small fortune! Having been a local here for 10years now I'm embarrassed to have a company like this representing the NT. I would never recommend this place to any of our many guests & would instead advise to just book a charter. At least then your getting something for your money(boat ride,fuel,lunch,decent rods,latest lures) you get to keep what you catch(at no extra cost) & you get to experience the beautiful. "free" rivers & water ways that go on for miles & miles while seeing crocodiles & countless more amazing wildlife.. Being locals we love to support local small business & industry but this is one business we will in no way be supporting & will we be sure to tell all of our local friends & their guests of this terrible encounter.. Stay away people!
