2nd visit to the lodge and didn't disappoint. Great place to catch many species of fish. The crew at Clearwater really know how to feed you. Michael really needs to do that cookbook of Clearwater classics because there are some recipes he dishes up that everyone should experience.
Most of all the guiding is what makes the trip... having a solid crew of fishing guides that keep you entertained, enjoy what they do and keep pushing all day to get you an even bigger fish than your last one is what makes this place a special place that is bound to get some revisits from this patron.

Thanks folks.

Another wonderful fishing trip to Melville Island. This year I brought my brother up with me and on previous occasions I brought my children who all loved the fishing.
Will be back for my 5th visit next year.
The hospitality is great and cuisine amazing! Thanks - Chris

Great fishing, terrific food and hospitality. So pleased that Clearwater could accomodate us at short notice after our trip to Vanuatu was cancelled. Tiwi's islands are remote and spectacular. Was always a Bucket List but will be back. Hard working guides with wicked sense of humour - thanks Glenn, Clinton and Koala.

When you are sitting down and compiling you Bucket List, please ensure that Clearwater Island Lodge is one of your top 3 entries. I spent 4 days and 4 nights at the lodge an if I pass away today I will die a very very happy man. The fishing there is one of the best experiences you will ever have. When you get fishing legends like Mark Berg continually returning it really has got to be something special. The fishing guides make you feel like you are going out fishing with a good mate. In the estuaries alone we caght Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon (three different species), Mangrove Jack, Fingermark Bream, Tarpin, Estuary and Gold Spotted Cod to mention a few. Unfortunately we didn't get to experience the blue water species but there will be a next time. The accommodation is comfortable with airconditioning and fans and the facilities have everything you need. The two other major highlights apart from the fishing is the food and hospitality. Every night we were subjected to a different meal which you would think you could only get at a restaurant holding a Chef Hat or Michelin Awards. Simply the best. Our first night we were presented with a whole Barra and a Seafood Platter containing Lobsters, Mud Crabs, Prawns, Oysters Scallops. All with accompanied sauses. Wow o Wow. The hospitality is second to none. On arrival you feel like you are have arrived at a very special place. Kerri, Michael and the team not only make you feel comfortable but they make you fell like you belong there. This trip I experienced has to be the most exciting and rewarding adventure that I have ever experienced in my entire life. Dont just think about going, do it now. I will be.

What a venue with fantastic hosts. At short notice, a great opportunity was organised for us.

We were lucky enough to catch plenty of fish and eat awesome food. Great climate and company.

Thank you Micheal and Kerri-Ann. We will be back soon.
