We at Wildside Sportfishing are committed to looking after these special places and minimising our impact as much as possible.
Some of our favourites are listed below. For more info try the ‘locations’ button in the menu above.
Billabongs / Wetlands
Mary River Bridge Lagoon
Shady Camp Freshwater Lagoon
The above wetland areas are all part of the Mary River system east of Darwin. They are all quite different in appearance and the most productive fishing methods vary in each as well. If you love wildlife and beautiful landscapes then visiting the billabongs is a must do on your territory adventure. Find out more at Billabong / Wetlands.
Shady Camp on the Mary River has a deserved reputation as a big barra hotspot, both in the ‘Runoff’ and in the ‘Build Up’ seasons. It is made up of vast flood plains, feeder creeks and two main river arms – Sampan and Tommycut Creeks. During flood it is a spectacular green with bird and animal life abounding, including plenty of crocs! Read more at Big River Barra.
Barra and Bluewater
Dundee beach is one of our most popular destinations, particularly over the ‘dry’ and ‘build up’ seasons. The pub / accommodation is right next to the boat ramp so at the end of a big day you can wander over and kick back with a cold one, enjoying the sunset over the sea. Large coconut palms dot the shoreline shadowing sandy beaches and ochre red cliffs. Dundee gives access to many great fishing areas like the Two Finnis Rivers, Roach and Blaze Reefs, the Perron Islands, small coastal creeks and the western side of Bynoe Harbor to name a few.
