East Arnhem Land

Located at the top of the Northern Territory, East Arnhem Land offers untouched beauty and pristine fishing grounds whether your chasing Permit and Bone Fish on fly rods in the crystal clear waters or giant Barramundi in the rivers and estuaries.

East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory offers remote, untouched natural beauty, abundant native wildlife and fish species, unique indigenous culture and an adventure fishing holiday of a lifetime on board Phoenix One. Operating during the dry season just after the wet season has replenished fish stocks, Phoenix One travels to some of East Arnhem Land's most stunning locations.

Let our crew expertly guide you along the pristine beaches and flats of the Wessel Islands and Cumberland Straits in search of Permit, Giant & Golden Trevally, Threadfin Salmon, Queenfish and many more great fighting fish. Or  join us on a Giant Barramundi hunt, travelling the rivers, estuaries and rock bars of Buckingham and Arnhem Bays. Phoenix One offers true luxury on the water after a day fishing the wilds of this beautiful region.
