Finniss River Barramundi Fishing

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.

Join a Finniss River Barramundi Fishing Safari with Darwin's Barra base to experience Barramundi fishing in Outback Australia.

  • Fishing safaris are completed in either of our 4 great NT Government surveyed plated guide boats powered by 250Hp or 150Hp 4 Stroke Suzuki Motors or a 225hp Yamaha motor. Please see photo of the boats here, They are 7.8m Mono-Hull with a 250Hp with a 30Hp Suzuki Auxillary, 6.8m Hydracraft with 250Hp Suzuki, 6.8m Raysea and a 5.8m Hydracraft with 150Hp Suzuki.
  • All vessels are spacious and comfortable with padded swivel seats and canopies for shade, with deep venturi live well tanks for holding your fish alive for that group fish photo. They also have large Eskies under the cast deck to put your fish keepers on ice.

Our guides have extensive knowledge of the fishing localities and there waters and will demonstrate great local knowledge to ensure that your group will be at the right place at the right time for that trophy fish that you have dreamed of. Our guides work as a team when working the remote localities to ensure best coverage and knowledge is used to ensure greater catch percentages, as well as safety and security of each other, whilst on the water.

Our Safari experiences have you fishing the pristine run off waters of the Finniss River System that flows into Fog Bay, as well as the coastal creeks & Reefs along Anson Bay. The flora and fauna at this time of year is breathtaking, and the birdlife is phenomenal. You will experience crocodiles in their own habitat and where pigs roam wild and dingoes scavenge for a feed along the edges of the mighty remote Finniss River.

The fishing experience not only covers Finniss River Barramundi from 50cm to 130cm, but also Golden Snapper, Threadfin Salmon over a metre, Blue Salmon, and don?t forget the awesome pulling power of the Black Jewfish.

Anth & Dani's Big Trip Anth & Dani "What an amazing trip, we had tried all types of fishing from rivers, deep channels, poppers, bait fishing, trolling and lure fishing. We were amazed at the variety of fish and beauty of the place. Special thanks to Allan and Heather for their hospitality, we highly recommend Darwin's Barra Base if you are coming to the Territory"
