What is the Million Dollar Fish Campaign?

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. Combine pleasure with prize – go fishing for a million dollar fish! 126 tagged fish have been released in the Top End, allowing you to win five thousand, ten thousand or a million dollars. Participants must be over the age of 18 years. This competition is open to International residents as well.

Additionally, all registered competition entrants are automatically added to a random prize pool draw, where you could win prizes worth over $30,000. The prize pool draw is open to Australian residents only.
