Yellow Water Fishing

Yellow Water Billabong, Kakadu's most famous wetland, is located at the end of Jim Jim Creek, a tributary of the South Alligator River.

The river system, which is the largest in Kakadu, contains extensive wetlands that include river channels, floodplains and backwater swamps.

For those who relish the thrill of fishing, Yellow Water Fishing offers an unparalleled experience. With the chance to catch the famous barramundi, these three-hour fishing adventures are perfect for beginners and families alike. Guided by experienced fishing experts, you're sure to enjoy a memorable time on these bountiful waters.

Fishing is with lures only so there is no need for live or fresh bait. The boat has a casting deck, seating, partial shade, iced water, refresher towels and keen guides full of fishing stories. And if you end up catching a fair sized fish, you can choose to bring it back for dinner, or return it to the billabong to fight another day.
