National Parks and Reserves

Rockhole, about one hour drive from Darwin, is another access point to the channels of the Mary River system, a hugely popular spot for barramundi fishing.

Located off Point Stuart Road in the Mary River National Park, Rockhole is an excellent stepping-off point from which to enjoy a day’s fishing or exploration of the tranquil surrounds. There is a boat ramp on site making easy access for those with their own boat, but for those who don’t, the Mary River Wetlands Cruise departs the Rockhole daily (seasonal). The two hour cruise travels through the permanent wetlands allowing time to settle in to view the birdlife and try to find water buffaloes, freshwater and saltwater crocodiles.
