Barramundi Fishing News

Hi Everyone,

 Good News, Darwins Barra Base has Sold as an Ongoing Business

The New Owner is Mick Hinchey & wife.

He has purchased the 7.8m 2C Guide Boat and the 6.8m 2D Survey Guide Boat; and many supporting items to the running of the Business. Like this Website and Facebook etc.

All Bookings made prior to this have been transferred to the new owner of Darwins Barra Base; or another Professional Fishing Tour Operator through the new owner.

Due to Allan’s (My) Ongoing Health Issues I have been told by Doctors and Physio to Stop Working. So I am Retiring and moving back to the Riverina to the Albury/Wodonga Area.

Yep Going Home.  Heather & I Thank You All for your Patronage over the Years and we wish you all a Prosperous Year in 2017.

The Wet Season is shaping up to be a Cracker with heavy falls happening daily, with a cyclone brewing off Darwin at present.  The Run Off is looking to be a good one, so book early.

Farewell from Allan & Heather Beale – Mobile for catch ups in Albury or Wodonga 0428450376.
