Try Your Hand at Million Dollar Fish

Fish the NT for million dollar fish

Fishing in Darwin and the Top End is world class and there are many diverse fishing habitats on offer - lush billabongs, big tidal rivers, mangrove-lined estuaries, a scattering of islands and hundreds of kilometres of unspoilt coastline. The pristine coastal waters are where some of the best tropical sportfishing action in the world takes place.

Dundee Region

By road, Dundee Beach is about two hours from Darwin and has a reputation for some of the best Bluewater fishing from Darwin.

With a boat ramp at the beach, you'll have no trouble launching and retrieving boats. Nearby you will find rocky points of the coast and exposed reefs are an ideal location for small boat fishing, with big jewfish less than 2km off shore. This coast is also great for catching Barramundi which is perfect for your chance to catch tagged barra and possibly catch the Million Dollar Fish!

Camping, caravan and lodge accommodation are available, as well as boat hire from Fish Dundee! Meet the Fish Dundee team at the Dundee Beach boat ramp at 7am to start your fun day out!
