“Barradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

This woul;d have to be one of the best, remote area fishing lodges in the world! The fishing is incredible, with unspoilt barramundi fishing waterways, blue water options for game fish and options no matter what the tide or weather.
The accommodation is in modified shipping containers (made to be able to handle the extrem.e weather) with air conditioning, comfy but basic rooms that have a bar fridge. The facilities are clean, but basic.
The location is spectacular, with great views and even better sunsets.
The team that run the lodge are extremely good and the guides ensure you catch loads of fish. The meals are also of a high standard, especially when you consider how remote a place you're in.
This really is a place that any keen angler, or adventurous traveller, will have an amazing time at!

Thanks for your very kind words.

We try very hard to control all the things that are controllable and pray to the fishing and weather gods for everything else.

We appreciate you taking the time to make a review.
