Yellow Water Fishing

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Yellow Water Billabong, Kakadu’s most famous wetland, is located at the end of Jim Jim Creek, a tributary of the South Alligator River. The river system, which is the largest in Kakadu, contains extensive wetlands that include river channels, floodplains and backwater swamps.

Fishing experiences of three hours are perfect for enthusiasts and even novices wanting to try their luck in one of the world’s most picturesque fishing locations. The tours are led by experienced guides, who provide all of the fishing gear and will coach you to cast, retrieve and how to make your lure the most attractive to the famous Yellow Water Barramundi.

It’s an experience of a life time! Yellow Water fishing provides an opportunity to catch the famous Barramundi on Kakadu’s most famous billabong.

Fishing is with lures only so there is no need for live or fresh bait. The boat has a casting deck, seating, partial shade, iced water, refresher towels and keen guides full of fishing stories. And if you end up catching a fair sized fish, you can choose to bring it back for dinner, or return it to the billabong to fight another day.
