I had to visit Melville island for work so my company booked myself and my colleague into the Clearwater Lodge. We both fairly enjoyed our stay, there is a common area with a big dining table and a bar that has a nice homely feel, which is only added too by the friendliness of the owners. There is a small...

We are two Mates that booked into Clear Island Waters Lodge for 5 days fishing. What a great place to spend a week fishing, we caught in excess of 70 fish with the biggest being a giant 1 meter Threadfin Salmon, what a fight on bait casting gear. The Barra were a little hard to find but still we still...

We have dined at Clearwater Lodge on several occassions. BEST meals I have ever had!! Their seafood is fresh and is always beautifully presented. I highly recommend the Clearwater Lodge because it is a wonderful place to lay back and enjoy the peace and quiet. The staff are wonderful people who truly know the Tiwis.

Clinton (kinky) your fishing guide makes the trip really special as he can find fish and his way around the Tiwis like no one else! The food was great and the lodge is just right! It's not 5 star but up here you think it is just as good and you will have a great trip!

Truly fantastic experience, could not recommend more highly – 11/10! First and foremost, the 3 days fishing were fantastic. Our two guides (Glenn and Clinton) were sensational – locals first and foremost, having grown up in the Tiwi Islands, extremely knowledgeable, patient and good for a yarn. We had two days on Barra and had success on each occasion, the...
