Groote Eylandt Lodge

Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria is known for its pristine natural and marine environment, spectacular scenery, Aboriginal art and culture, and some of the best fishing in the world.

The traditional owners of the Groote Eylandt archipelago region are the Warnindilyakwa people, referred to by their language name, Anindilyakwa.

Groote Eylandt Lodge offers quality waterfront accommodation, incorporating Seagrass Restaurant a conference suite, day spa, art centre and cultural experiences, and Sports Fishing Operation.

World-class fishing

The archipelago and its natural environment is quite unique, with pristine beaches, spring water swimming holes, open woodland, rainforest and sand dunes. The marine environment surrounding the island has complex reef systems and a rich fishery.

Why it's a fishing mecca

It's isolated-zero pressure from commercial fishing operators and virtually none from recreational anglers mean fish stocks around Groote are incredibly healthy.

Ideal breeding habitats-the archipelago's fringing coral reefs, rocky headlands and sand islands create plenty of sheltered breeding areas for bait fish. This abundance of bait is what brings in the big sportfish anglers love to catch.

Every tropical species is here-sailfish, marlin, Spanish mackerel, huge GTs, mangrove Jacks, golden snapper, queenfish and the mighty barramundi.
