Next to Adelaide River Bridge on the Arnhem Highway with tidal access. Accessible on most tides but difficulties may be encountered on extremely low water. Managed by NT Government. See web link for tide times.

Access to Adelaide River is 70km east of Darwin via the Stuart and Arnhem Highways. The river is easily accessed from a concrete boat ramp just upstream from the Adelaide River bridge. The river has many creek mouths that can be fished for barra during both the tropical summer months and the run-off period.

Upstream, around Goat Island, there are submerged rock bars that fish well through the dry on neap tides when the water is usually fairly clear. Around the river mouth, there’s excellent fishing for jewfish, golden snapper and saltwater barra. Succulent mud crabs can also be taken from this area throughout most of the year.
