Sports Fishing Safaris

Our core fishing offering at Groote Eylandt is also suitable for everybody—from novices and young people to experienced anglers.

There are three safaris to choose from:

Prices shown are per person based on 4 persons travelling

Your safari includes:

  • return airfares from Darwin
  • twin share accommodation
  • breakfast, lunch and dinner each day
  • 3, 4 or 5 days of guided fishing
  • all transfers on Groote Eylandt

On a typical three-day safari, you’ll experience reef, bluewater and estuary fishing and tangle with hard-hitting tropical species from marlin and sailfish on day one to the iconic barramundi on day three.


  • jigging deepwater lures for golden snapper, nannygai and red emperor
  • trolling and casting for Spanish mackerel, giant barracuda and longtail tuna
  • trolling and switch-baiting for marlin and sailfish
  • popper fishing for enormous queenfish and GTs
  • casting and trolling for barramundi and mangrove Jack in virtually unfished waters.

Groote Eylandt’s fishing areas are vast, so five days (or longer) is recommended as the optimum time-frame to maximise your Groote fishing experience.
