Comfortable accomodation, excellent food, excellent service, knowledgeable guides, well worth the money. If you are a die hard fisho you will love this place and if you want to see a stunning part of our world this is it. Interacting with the local indigenous people was an eye opener.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with ensuite bathrooms.

We visited as a group of 6 at the end of March for two days fishing and had a great time. A great mix of blue water and river fishing allowed for diverse fishing for our group. The accommodation was comfortable and the food tasty. A great fishing trip that was enjoyed by our entire family.

Hi WK, thanks for taking time out of your day and posting a review. I'm glad the family had a great time and choosing to stay in our VIP rooms made your stay even more enjoyable I'm sure. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Stayed for a few days, the whole place was so very well kept, clean and tidy. Meals by the chef were varied with a nice Jewfish starters with a beer before dinner. Boats were well cared for and maintained. Views from the lodge looked back to Snake bay and to the Arafura sea, fantastic with the storms rolling in. Thanks to our hosts for a great stay, plan to return, with a rod.

Room Tip: Choose the Private Room, bit extra, but nice quiet area.

Hi Chudley, thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Sitting on the deck with a beer and some well cooked fresh fish is as good as it sounds. I'll pass on your kind words to the lodge and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Recently 2 mates and I spent 4 nights at Melville Island Lodge run by TIWI Adventures. We fished over 3 full days and accounted for 22 different species including a 91cm Barra and a 140cm Longtail Tuna. What a paradise it turned out to be with a full cooked breakfast at 0600 every day then onto the 6.5 Metre boats for a full days fishing with a lunch stop under shade. Then back to the lodge at 17.00 for Sundowners and Seafood appertisers before sitting down to a Chef prepared dinner with multiple choices of mains and dessert to follow (if you can fit it in ??)
. The accommodation in twin share rooms was extremely comfortable and air-conditioned and quiet. The staff were ALL very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. The fishing guides on each boat were extremely knowledgeable and put us onto a great variety of good fish everyday
It is a place I would thoroughly recommend to Experienced and Novice Fishers alike. They supply ALL the fishing gear you need and it is all top quality tackle. As I said in my Title it is FISHING IN PARADISE. I'll be back ASAP!!!. .

Hi Robert, thanks for kind words mate. You caught some very nice fish whilst you were here and it was a pleasure having you and the guys. Look forward to seeing you again Robert and we'll try and find that extra 9cm so you can join the metre barra club.

I visited the lodge and Johnson river camp with three friends over 8 days. The three we had at melville lodge were great, can not complain about anything. The guides were great, Grassy and Paul. We fished three locations, two to a boat, ca aught fish every day. The accomodation for a fishing camp is great, air con, wi fi etc. The food is great and plenty of it if you want. We have been there before, and most probably will return.

Hi Paddles, thanks for taking time out of your day and posting a review.
The joint trip taking in both Melville Island Lodge and Johnson River Camp is nice and easy to do and you get to visit 2 of the best fishing lodges in Australia. Hope to see you up here again.
