Roper River Fishing

Unleash your angler’s instinct and indulge in the thrills of reeling in a variety of prized catches on the Roper River fishing charter.

Your charter will begin in Darwin, departing on the Grumman Mallard Amphibian Aircraft and arrive on the back deck of the “Iron Lady” mothership after just two hours.

Once onboard, our chef and hostess serve breakfast. The fishing gear is loaded into skiffs, ready for you to catch your first Barramundi in the NT. The “Iron Lady” becomes your home away from home while your fishing adventure unfolds. Our seasoned guides take you to chosen hotspots and impart local wisdom and advanced fishing techniques.

The Roper River, teeming with fish species, is renowned as one of Australia’s premier fishing destinations. This magnificent river flows into the Gulf of Carpentaria and is navigable for almost 170 km. With its pristine waters and thriving ecosystem, the Roper River attracts fishing enthusiasts worldwide. Captain Dan and the Australian Sportfishing Charters crew know the river intimately. You can be confident that they know exactly where to take you in search of the elusive “metrey” Barramundi, and competition is virtually nonexistent.
