An extended fishing safari means more time fishing,
less time travelling to the fish.
3- 5 day safaris are offered by Darwin's Barra Base, carefully timed to take advantage of the best available tides and fishing conditions.

Check the calendar for seats still available on one of the three specially built boats to experience the fishing adventure of a lifetime.

One day Barramundi Fishing Trips


Hi Allan,

I was out fishing with you on Saturday last week and I might add, had a ball! I thoroughly enjoyed my day out on Coroboree Lagoon with you, the fellow players on the boat and my first Barra! I have been telling everyone proudly about my first barra and how much fun I had.
Anyway, thanks again for a great day out and hopefully I will be up there soon to fish for barramundi again! Hopefully Run-off, (I'm sounding out some of the boys about it).

Thanks!
Allan Cummin

Barramundi like these are quite common in the rivers and coastal waters of the Northern Terriory. When you fish for barramundi, experienced fishing guides and the right equipment can make the difference between an ordinary catch and extraordinary fish like these.

May to November is the season for Bluewater fishing for Barramundi and hard fighting bluewater reef fish which include the famous Jewfish, Snapper, Coral Trout, Red Emperor and the pelagic fish species such as Tuna, Mackerel, Queenfish and the Giant Trevally.
