Tiwi Islands Adventures

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Tiwi Islands Adventures is the operating name for Melville Island Lodge and Johnson River Camp. Featured in Tourism Australia`s international Marketing Campaign – Great Fishing Adventures of Australia. Our two lodges are world class sport fishing destinations.

Located on the Tiwi Islands, a scenic 30 minute flight from Darwin, in the Northern Territory of Australia. We have exclusively operated here since 1998 and cater for anglers of all skill levels, families and corporate groups looking for a remote, yet comfortable, sport-fishing experience.

We provide our guests with a high-quality catch & release fishing adventure in a spectacular wilderness environment. Dominant fish species include barramundi, mangrove jacks, threadfin salmon, saratoga, jewfish, golden snapper, GT’s, coral trout plus 30 or more other species of river, creek and reef fish. You will also experience an abundance of Territory bird life and wildlife.

With two exclusive locations to choose from; Our Melville Island Lodge headquarters situated in the community of Milikapiti overlooking the shores of Snake Bay (max 18 guests), or our ultra-remote Johnson River Camp (max 9 guests) on the Johnson River on the east coast of Melville Island. Neither will disappoint, experience this remote and remarkable paradise today.
