Jarbu Lodge

Jarbu Lodge is a small privately run fishing lodge offering access to exclusive locations, including fishing rights to a number of bays on the mainland. With enthusiastic and professional guides ready to ensure you target the species of your choice, including the unstoppable giant trevally, queenfish, Spanish mackerel, or mangrove jack to test the limits of your line. And the famous barramundi can be caught along the beaches and rocky outcrops, an experience not to be missed. Only a limited number of people are able to visit Jarbu Fishing Lodge, ensuring protection of the area and vast fish supplies.

The unique accommodation is eco-tourism bungalows which are built on a platform, to allow ample ventilation and cooling sea breezes through the lush tropical trees and plants that surround the lodge. After an energetic day’s fishing, relax in the dining area and soak up the stunning sea views. Murin Airways service Croker Island via Darwin five times a week, so you’re just two hours away from a truly memorable adventure.
