I had great time at the clearwater island lodge. The location is amazing, staff are friendly and the food is sensational. The rooms are neat and tidy and so are the showers and pool.
Michael and Kerry were wonderful hosts, very warm and attentive and i would recommend this place to anyone coming to Tiwi.

If you love fishing and great people this is the place.

Unspoilt wilderness, a laid back and super friendly place to be and the most extraordinary choice of fishing experiences from reef to estuary which are easily accessed in the one day.

I only had 2 days fishing which wasn't nearly enough for me. I can't wait to go back.

Thanks to everyone up there for a fantastic time - Michael, Kerr-ann, Clinton (what a guide), Dave (what a cook), David (for his guitar playing), Glenn (for guiding me last time) and Jarrod (thanks for that last g&t mate..)

Oh and I went to the local art gallery and bought the most awesome painting. I just love it there!

I've fished from 3 locations in the "Top End" over the years and Clearwater Island Lodge is easily the best I've experienced. I went there a few years ago with a group of six sons and son's in law. The fishing was varied and excellent. The guides were great. Food fantastic. Just a relaxing and awesome place - can't recommend it high enough.

Went to Melville Island to bird-watch while my husband fished. Now a converted fisherwoman after a metre long jewfish, 80cm barra, arms exhausted by spanish mackeral and more golden snapper than I can handle. And Dave in the kitchen can mangrove jacks into really magical meals! It was hot & humid...got to expect that at the end of the Wet, but there is a wonderful cool spa pool at the end of a days fishing. We were only there 3 days and I am hungry for more!
PS the birdwatching is pretty good too!

Thank you Bron for your fantastic review of Clearwater Island Lodge.

We were all really excited to read that we managed to convert you from being a very avid birdwatcher to an exceptional fisher woman not bad for your first time hitting the metre club with your jewfish! We always warn the husbands about being out fished and true to our word you did it as do many other wife's whom come here for their first fishing experience.
Glen was so proud to boast about your achievements everyday.
All the team and I cannot wait to see you both again sometime soon.
Take Care and all the best for 2013.

Fished with my 10 year old son and just loved the place , although August is not considered prime time we still caught plenty of Barra to 70cm Black Jew around 15kg and plenty of other odds and sods. Guides were exceptional , patient and a pleasure to fish with. Great food ,cold beer and tidy accommodation.Whilst not five star more than adequate when you are there to chase fish and experience the magical surrounds of the Tiwi Islands and the people who live there.
Would love to return when the finance's allow!
