A beautiful billabong for boat fishers. This can be a tougher spot to catch fish than some of the other billabongs so head out if you like a challenge!

There is no safe fishing from the shore so a boat is essential. Once you’re out on the water catch yourself a big juicy barra, or perhaps a saratoga – if it doesn’t jump your hook.

Muirella Park campsite is nearby, with showers and toilets, so stay a night or two, soak up country and reconnect with all that’s great in life!

Be Crocwise: Fishing and boating

  • Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs!
  • Do not enter the water when fishing.
  • Never lean over the edge of a boat, out on a tree limb or enter the water to retrieve snagged lures.
  • When fishing from the bank fish five metres from the water’s edge.
  • Saltwater crocodiles can attack people in boats, the smaller the boat the greater the risk.
  • All non-powered vessels are prohibited in Kakadu.
