Leaders Creek Fishing Base

Leaders Creek Fishing Base is ideal for fishing enthusiasts.

Its close proximity to Darwin is perfect for those with limited time for a fabulous fishing adventure in the Top End. On-site boat hire with the launch and retrieve service makes it super quick and easy to get out on the water. Leaders Creek boat ramp is located just outside the property. It provides access to approximately 15 kilometers of pristine sheltered waterways. You'll have the opportunity to catch Barra, Jewie, Mangrove Jack, Salmon, Big Mud Crabs and more.

If fishing isn't your thing, you can enjoy the bush setting, fresh air, sunshine and local wildlife. Gunn Point Beach is a short drive away and is beautiful for a sunset stroll.

Leaders Creek Fishing Base has campsites, eco-tents and air-conditioned rooms. There's a small kiosk selling ice, bait, drinks and snacks for your convenience.
