“Just a short note this trip was awesome. From the time we booked and when we left the Barra Fishing Safari was the best. We are thinking of getting another group for Next year.”

Glen, March 2016

“7 blokes who hadn't been to Darwin before but absolutely loved the experience. Caught 4 metre plus Barra during the trip. Stayed on the mothership which gave us the opportunity to spend endless time on the water, fishing. Cyclone Nathan cut short our enjoyable time but we will all be talking about this trip for years to come. ”

Jim, March 2015


“Our 3 Day Barra Safari trip to Shady Camp was the best fishing trip we have ever been on, our guide Jason took us to an inlet to the flood plains where these barra were chasing mullet, on the surface, flicking lures over these swirls we landed heaps of barra up to a metre. our trip was well organised and a big thankyou to Heather at Barra Base Darwin for picking us up from airport and dropping us off, we will be definitely be doing this again.”

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"
