Birds at sunset in Darwin

Rockhole

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. Travel through the permanent wetlands enjoying the fishing and viewing the birdlife, freshwater and saltwater crocodiles. Remember to Be Crocwise.

Enter the park through Bird Billabong or Point Stuart Road
