Surrounding the lodge is some 300 square kilometres of prime, virtually unfished water. Four main areas cater for every angling experience: reef, bluewater sportfishing, estuary and fly fishing.

And if the weather is unfriendly and we can’t get out to these main areas, there’s plenty of sheltered water within a kilometre of the shore where anglers can ‘bottom bounce’ for reef species like red emperor, large mouth nannygai and the prized golden snapper.
