Wessel Islands

The Wessel Islands and east Arnhem Land is one of Australia’s and the world’s truly remote and special saltwater fly fishing destinations.

Flying into Nhulunbuy, home of the Yolngu people, the region is steeped in indigenous culture, and traditions, and where you will be greeted before boarding the magnificent Phoenix One for your overnight journey into the Arafura Sea.

Extending north from East Arnhem Land at the very top of Australia’s Northern Territory the Wessel Islands chain is home to both species of Indo Pacific Permit (both T. anak and T. blochii), including the iconic Australian Blue Bastard and Blue Spotted Tusk fish.

The northern most reaches are home to secluded bays, beaches and sand flats interspersed with inshore reef systems and a very healthy ecosystem, including the critically endangered Sawfish still swimming its waters.

The first class 115ft foot Phoenix One provides great service and comfort throughout the week, with a team of fly fishing tenders in tow, great crew and specialised fly fishing guides.

Other fish to target include the acrobatic Queenfish, Giant, Diamond and Golden Trevally, Brassy Trevally, Longtail Tuna and an array of reef species to target on fly.

The southern region of the Wessel Islands chain is lined with mangrove creeks holding good numbers of Barramundi and Mangrove Jack with some deeper flats and channel systems providing great diversity throughout the week.

It is a hidden gem on the world stage.
