About Us


Tiwi Islands Adventures

located on the Tiwi Islands, a scenic 30 minute flight from Darwin, in the Northern Territory of Australia.

We can customise and deliver a premier fishing experience for small to large groups such as corporate, team building, networking or celebration trips who are seeking a remote, yet comfortable, professionally guided sport-fishing experience. We provide our guests with a high-quality catch & release fishing adventure.

Situated in a spectacular and pristine wilderness environment, our dominant fish species include barramundi, mangrove jacks, threadfin salmon, saratoga, golden snapper, black jewfish, queenfish, giant trevally, spanish mackerel plus 40 more other species.

Situated 60 kms to the north of Darwin, Melville and neighbouring Bathurst Island are collectively known as the ‘Tiwi Islands' – the home of the Tiwi people and the home of Tiwi Islands Adventures.

Known for its tropical climate, its small and friendly indigenous population and its exclusive fishing, there is very little infrastructure on the Tiwi Islands, and they are not open to the public for tourism, except on organised trips operated by Tiwi Islands Adventures.

Our remote and remarkable area consists of thousands of square kilometers of eucalypt, paperbark and monsoon vine forest, coastal wetlands, secluded waterfalls and deserted beaches. An extensive array of mangrove lined river and creek systems, sand flats, bays, inlets and coastal reefs, all abundant with marine life, means the Tiwi Islands are also an unspoiled angler’s paradise.

We operate from a remote location on the Tiwi Islands; Our Melville Island Lodge headquarters situated on the shores of Snake Bay.

Access to the Tiwi Islands is via Darwin. From Darwin you will be transported to the islands by light aircraft.
