A fishing mecca
GROOTE Eylandt lies 650 kilometres off the coast of Darwin and is the third largest island in Australia.
A unique environment with pristine beaches, spring water swimming holes, rainforest and sand dunes, the area is a haven for anglers to experience some of the best fishing in the world.
Groote is also home to GEMCO, a manganese ore mine, which means there are multiple daily flights and luxury accommodation at Groote Eylandt Lodge available to fishers travelling to the island.
“On a typical three-day safari, you can experience reef, bluewater and estuary fishing and tangle with hard-hitting tropical species,” fishing guide Jonathon Eddy said.
“You could fish for three or four days out here and catch a marlin on the first day and a barramundi on the last day and every other species the tropics has to offer in between.”
The archipelago’s diverse marine habitats mean anglers can taste the Top End’s world-renowned fishing experiences in just a few days without sacrificing the creature comforts of home.
Tailored sports fishing packages including accommodation, flights, all meals and transfers can be booked online at www.grootefishing.com.au or by calling (08) 8987 7077.
