Gateway City in the Northern Territory is Darwin, a city of 30,000 people
in the far north of the state. Darwin has a number of good hotels and
very interesting local tours.
Times for Hunting
The best months for hunting are the cool dry winter months of May to
September. The waterways dry out, attracting the game animals to the
Normally by May each year, we burn off all of the dead grass in many
of the hunting areas. This produces new green grass, which attracts
the game animals during the dry season which makes the hunting easier
and more productive.
the semi-desert areas where we hunt donkeys, horses and camels, we do
not burn the grass. Most of our hunting is conducted in remote, exclusive,
private cattle ranches, from our own camps.
All hunting is conducted from our 4WD Toyota Landcruisers. When the
Buffalo are located, we stalk them on foot.
Wild Boars are hunted over strategically placed baits, either early
in the morning, late in the afternoon or in the evenings. We hunt boars
by stalking, or from high seats.
All Culling hunts are conducted by cruising all of the farm tracks and
waterways in our Toyotas.
Rifles for hunting should be 308W or 30-06 for Culling, 30-60 or 300
Magnum for Boars and Goats, and 9.3 x 64, 375 H&H or larger for Buffalo.
We recommend only premium brand soft point ammunition for all hunting.
Use only the heaviest weight bullets for Buffalo hunts. We can arrange
rifle entry permits for those hunters who wish to bring their own firearms
to Australia. For those hunters who do not wish to bring their own firearms,
our quality Leupold scope equipped rifles may be hired at a reasonable
Best Times for Fishing
The best times for Sport Fishing are the months of April and May, and
then again in September and October. However, good barrumundi fishing
can be had all year round.
Our Sport Fishing areas are a combination of fresh water billabongs,
fresh water streams, tidal reaches and salt water. In some areas, it
is best to fish from the banks but most times we employ the use of our
especially built outboard powered boats.
We have several lightweight aluminium Toyota-top boats, which we use,
in remote inaccessible areas.
In accessible areas we use our two custom-built "Barra" boats which
are stable fishing platforms powered by fast mariner outboards.
For Open Water Fishing we use our 18-foot aluminium 6 seat, 75 horsepower
Yamaha powered boat.
We have custom-built rods equipped with the latest SS Penn reels, a
huge supply of lures and other high quality fishing equipment. We are
equipped to cater for both inexperienced or highly experienced fishermen
We have two seasons in the Northern Territory. "The wet season"
from November to March, when the weather is hot and wet during our summer
months. By mid October, the humidity begins to rise in the build-up
to the wet season. This is the time when you need to swim regularly
and relax in the cool shade of the trees to keep yourself comfortable.
"The dry season" is from April to October, when the weather is cool
and dry during our winter months. The average daytime temperature in
winter is 25°C to 28°C (75°F to 85°F) with nighttime temperatures dropping
from 16°C down to a low 8°C (65°F to 50°F) on the coldest winter nights.
