For the novice or enthusiast the opportunity for some of the best fishing in northern Australia can be found here. The Bullo River runs for 80km through the property providing the opportunity for fresh and tidal salt water fishing. The Bullo River then joins the Victoria River, one of the largest and most remote rivers in Australia and the property's eastern boundary.

Mighty barramundi, tipping the scales at 20-plus kilograms, are found throughout the waterways and it's the prospect of tangling with these spectacular and hard-fighting fish that consistently draws angling die-hards. Your guides have many years' experience on Bullo River and they consistently put clients on to big barra in beautiful surroundings. Quality fishing gear is supplied at the Station and included in the nightly rate.

Whilst Bullo is famous for Barramundi fishing there are also other species including Thread Fin Salmon, Jew Fish, Mangrove Jack and Black Bream. We have boats to get you where the fish are biting. Of course you can fish from the river bank or you can travel by helicopter to some of the more remote fishing spots.

Chopper fishing at Bullo River station is by far the best way to experience all the fishing this station has to offer.

The best time to fish at Bullo is during the run-off from the wet season, which is around March, April and May. Alternatively it is alos a great time to fish during the build-up to the wet season, which is October and November.


If a visit at those times is not suitable it does not matter as the fish bite in the billabongs at Bullo all year round. If fishing is your primary interest, we can advise the best dates and tides for superb fishing.
