Fishing in the Kimberley


The Kimberley is one of Australia’s premier fishing destinations.

Home to the fabled Barramundi and a host of other tropical species

Kununurra is the gateway to fishing the Kimberley, and Northbound Charters will help you to experience the best in Kimberley fishing adventures. From freshwater adventures on Lake Kununurra, exploring the wild Ord River or visiting remote coastal creeks, we know where to go.

At Northbound we work with the tides, the recent fishing activity, and the weather to give you the very best chance to land some superb fish. Targeting the iconic Barramundi we know where to go to get the photos and tick the Barramundi off your bucketlist

Spend a full day fishing the remote waterways of the Kimberley. Offering so much more than just a fishing charter, the scenery in this area is stunning, rugged and raw. Sheer rock faces meet the vast water offering an ideal photo opportunity. The Kimberley is the home of big crocs, and while they usually lurk beneath the muddy waters, during the cooler months of June and July they can be spotted sunning themselves on the banks at low tide.

Those keen on tasting the succulent white meat of a green Kimberley mud crab can put away the rods for a couple of hours and try their luck at catching one of these prized delicacies. Even the hungriest fisherman will struggle to get through one good sized mud crab as their claws can grow to the size of your beer can. Offering lots of laughs and a chance to encounter a curious greedy crocodile, mud crabbing is a great Kimberley pastime.
