Clinton (kinky) your fishing guide makes the trip really special as he can find fish and his way around the Tiwis like no one else! The food was great and the lodge is just right! It's not 5 star but up here you think it is just as good and you will have a great trip!

Our two guides (Glenn and Clinton) were sensational – locals first and foremost, having grown up in the Tiwi Islands, extremely knowledgeable, patient and good for a yarn. We had two days on Barra and had success on each occasion, the... More

The group arrived about 2.00pm and upon arrival at the airport, we were met and driven to the lodge. We were greeted very warmly and introduced to staff. They told us a lunch had been prepared and we sat down to a delicious fish and salad meal. The next exercise was to settle in to the accommodation which was really... More
