Barra & Sportfishing Lodge
Enjoy the finest saltwater lure fishing
experience targeting Barramundi, one of the main attractions at Dhipirri Barra
& Sportfishing Lodge.
Situated at the Northern Coast of
Australia, in the region of Arnhem Land, the Dhipirri Barra & Sportfishing
Lodge is one of the most sought after Barra fishing haven in Australia. The
lodge was constructed by the coast in the outback of Kakadu National park. Due
to its remote location and abundance of creeks and rivers around the area, as
well as countless target species of fishes available, anglers constantly return
to Dhipirri for the world-class fishing experience. Dhipirri Barra &
Sportfishing Lodge is the only charter lodge that has exclusive rights to
operate in the area.
Although the main target for anglers here
is the Barramundi, you will have an absolute blast when fishing the offshore
bluewaters. Trevallies, Queenfish, Golden Snapper, Coral Trout, Spanish
Mackerel and Longtail/Mack Tuna are the usual bluewater targets to name a
With 5 professional skippers manning 5
boats, with each boat holding up to 3 anglers at a time, the trip can easily
cater for large groups of up to 15 people at a time or smaller groups alike.
Skippers will be assigned to each group of 2-3pax per boat.
A private flight will be chartered to land
at Dhipirri’s private airstrip, which is only a 5-minute drive to the lodge.
The lodge at Dhipirri facilitates 2 or 3 anglers to a fully air-conditioned
cabin, with two separate guest bathroom areas with solar hot water. A
