Kakadu National Park

Yellow Water wetlands is a premier fishing destination. Glide over the extensive waters and settle in for a glorious NT day!

You’ll find great barra here, plus, peaceful companions in the many fantastic bird species that live on the wetlands – from comb-crested jacanas and snake-necked darters to azure kingfishers and jabirus.

Yellow Water is also a popular Kakadu hub with Cooinda Lodge, campgrounds and various tours and activities nearby.


Yellow Water Fishing

Jump on board a three hour fishing trip with experienced guides who provide all of the fishing gear and coaching required to attract a Yellow Water barramundi.

Fishing is with lures only so there is no need for live or fresh bait. The boat has a casting deck, seating, partial shade, iced water, refresher towels and keen guides full of fishing stories.

And if you end up catching a fair-sized fish, you can choose to bring it back for dinner, or return it to the billabong to fight another day.
