If you want a slice of the fishing action, you may want to snap up a piece of real estate in Darwin.
The city's beautiful waterfront location offers plenty of opportunities for locals to sink their hooks and try to catch a big one – from sheltered waterways to wrecks, reefs and blue water fishing, there are plenty of options in this stunning area.
While you do not need a recreational fishing licence to catch fish in the area, the Northern Territory government advises that you be respectful of Aboriginal land, as many of the intertidal waters lay over it.
Choose to hit the water on your own or sign yourself and your mates up to a chartered fishing tour, such as the one offered by 'Fish the top end.'
This group offers a three or four day experience and is more than happy to tailor a trip to suit your requirements.
You can see what's biting in Marie Shoals, the Tiwi and the Perron Islands, Moss Shoals, Evans Shoals, Flat Top Banks or Cape Ford and its surrounding banks.
Residents of Darwin Property are close to many fishing areas and can catch giant black jewfish, cod, golden snapper, mackerel, red emperor, tusk fish, tuna, coral trout, cobia, snailfish and rare species such as long nose emperor, mangrove jacks, marlin and gold band snapper.
