An absolutely beautiful, relaxing destination with an estuary system that seems to have no end.

At Clearwater Island Lodge, everything can be customized according to the needs of the group. Some of the highly recommended activities would include a traditional cook-‐up (Tiwi style) in a remote island, crocodile spotting as well as barbecue at our springfed swimming-‐hole. You can see a list of these activities and more in the attached fact sheet.
All cultural tours are included in the cost of our fishing packages. In other words guests have the option of doing just fishing or a mixture of fishing and cultural activities at any given time, this does not need to be prearranged. Upon the groups arrival we like to work with them in finding out exactly what they would like to do while here and then go about setting it in motion. For example not everybody in the group may want to fish for 6 days straight, therefore within the price of their fishing package we are able to generate other activities for them.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Our in-‐house restaurant, Clear View Restaurant & Bar has a wide selection of beers, spirits and wines. If you have any special preferences please let us know and we will specially order this in for you and your group. If you would like to round out your day with your catch expertly cooked for you, our chef has a wide range of mouth watering recipes for every type of Tiwi Island’s fish and crustaceans.
