As a travel destination, Bynoe Harbour is a great wilderness escape.
It's a region of unspoiled beaches, and many low wooded islands
surrounded by clear water, rocky headlands and sandy tidal flats that
can turn on some wonderful fishing when the conditions are right.
Jewfish and golden snapper are prolific and the barramundi fishing is
not bad either. There are many estuarine species also which makes the
area well worth the effort of a visit.
The fish caught in the harbour include barramundi, trevally,
queenfish, schnapper, blue and threadfin salmon, barracuda, mangrove
jack, black jewfish, shark, grunter, cod and others. As elsewhere,
estuarine crocodiles are common. The harbour is also worked by
commercial fishermen, yet despite their presence fishing remains very
productive. Mangrove creeks and inlets have plenty of action and some
of the best crabbing in the Top End is right here.
