Barramundi Adventures Darwin

If you’re keen to catch a Barramundi in the Northern Territory though not so keen on spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars on a fishing charter or Helifish charter than a trip to Barramundi Adventures land-based fishing farm is definitely worth a go.

Located approximately 40mins south of the Darwin CBD this awesome setup allows you to fish for a 2hr period within a lake stocked full of Barramundi.

What is it like?

When I visited I wasn’t sure what to expect though after arriving and checking out the place I was quietly surprised. With a nice deck to fish from and a shaded area with tables and chair for on-lookers it is a nice environment to fish in.

Will you catch fish?

Although it’s not guaranteed there are heaps of Barramundi in the lake so the odds are definitely in your favour. When I was there the group I was in had 8 people fishing and by the end of the session everyone in the group had landed a decent Barramundi each.

The staff also do a great job at helping you catch a Barra and if you do struggle to catch one they usually burley up around you to increase your chances of a hook up.

How big are the Barramundi?

There are some huge barra in the lake ranging well up to the 1m mark. On the day the biggest barra I witnessed being caught was 82cm which put up a great fight!

Can you take the Barramundi home?

Yes, I believe you can – well someone in our group did though I’m unsure of the costs to do so. Best to check with them when booking your session.

What does it cost?

When we visited it cost $90 per adult to fish for a 2 hr fishing session and $45 for the kids.

Whats the fishing tackle like?

The rods and reels provided are fixed spools reels. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have any bait caster setups to use though I guess they used fixed spool setups due to a number of beginners fishing there.

What else can you do there?

After fishing, we were taken over to hand feed some of the massive 1.2m+ barra located in another pond area. This is worthwhile doing…was crazy to hear the loud “boof” noise they make when they inhale the fish!
