Our difference

We offer the most personalised fishing experience in the Top End, catering for a maximum of only two fishing groups at a time. This exclusive experience gives you the opportunity to fish in solitude and experience some of the best blue water and barramundi fishing in Australia. Permits for the Cobourg Peninsula are heavily regulated meaning you will never be part of a crowd. In additional to world class fishing you'll enjoy chef prepared meals each evening featuring a range of locally caught seafood and premium cuts of meat. All alcohol can be pre-ordered at bottle-shop prices.

Everything’s taken care of

Let us take care of everything! From flights to fishing gear it’s all included. Our goal is to take the responsibility away from our guests and make each and everyone’s fishing experience as easy as possible. Our fishing packages include everything besides your luggage! This includes pick-up & drop-off from your Darwin hotel, charter flights to/from Cobourg Coastal Camp, private fishing charters with all equipment provided, meals, drinks and expert fishing guides.
