Million dollar fish
Season 4 of the Million Dollar Fish kicked off on 1 October 2018. Apart from the local fishos getting out on the water again, this promotional campaign to get people to the Top End is unique and provides a boost to the Territory Tourism economy at a time of the year that most people are leaving in droves.
Make sure you register on the web site prior to going fishing to catch the cash.
Stories regarding the catching of these fish are numerous, usually ending up on the NT news pages. Some lucky anglers have caught more than 1 fish in a season, lucky people!
One story from an early season doing the rounds was of Police Officers walking past a group of people tucking into a freshly caught barra on the coals up Sadgroves Creek way. Notice by the constabularly melting in the fire was a tag, perhaps it was the Million dollar fish and nobody took any notice! Who knows!
If you are a visitor why not end or start your Top End fishing expedition with a relaxing sunset cruise on KURU, a luxury sailing catamaran built for client comfort. City of Darwin Cruises can provide you with a range of sailing options such as a sunset cruise with nibbles and free drinks or a sunset cruise nibbles, bbq meal and free drinks. We can even cook your fish on the BBQ!
