Fresh Water Fishing Trips

Take to the skies to chase barramundi in a helicopter. On your heli-fishing tour you will see the Kimberley wilderness from the air, try to land the Top End’s most prized fish and take a dip in a cool, crocodile-free swimming hole.

"Wow, that was an experience! Truly unforgettable and worth every cent. Highly recommend "
Mike & Lora

Day 1: Diamonds and Indigenous art

Fly into the distant East Kimberley community of Kununurra, in Western Australia’s north-east, where you’ll be picked up from the airport and whisked in air-conditioned comfort to your accommodation. Relax by the pool with a cocktail in hand, or visit one of the town’s impressive galleries, where you can view and buy local and indigenous art. The Kimberley region is also famed for its diamonds – including the rare Pink Argyles – and there are a number of well-regarded jewellery shops worth browsing.

Day 2: Your heli-fishing adventure

Board your helicopter early in the morning, before the heat of another Kimberley day takes hold, and you’ll soon find yourself flying low over a constantly changing landscape of ochre-red cliffs, sunbaked plains and twisting river gorges.

You’ll spend up to two hours in total in the air today, fishing up to three different locations accessible only by helicopter. You can also cool off with a dip in crystal clear waters, well beyond the range of the saltwater crocodiles you’ve been spotting from the chopper.

Day 3: A lazy river and a monster barra

Day 4: One last chopper ride
