Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic half day charter with Skipper Mat, he really made the day enjoyable.
Mat showed us some incredible scenery, stoped wherever we wanted to, and taught us some interesting facts about the place, it’s really great how he tailors the day to what we wanted to do, whether that be sight seeing or fishing!

After the tour of the lake we then finished off with some fishing which was great fun.

Highly recommend.

Spent a day on the Ord to land a Baramundi with skipper Matt - this trip will not disappoint you - the boat, fishing gear, drinks & snacks met the standard. Yes we did catch a few (tag and release) but were amazed at the wildlife - birds - mammals cattle and crocodiles (bloody big) Matt did every thing possible to make the day a success - was very knowledgeable shared his expertise (including fishing) to make the day memorable.

I have been out with Northbound Charters twice now. First time was when my parents were visiting town and hadn't been on the lower Ord River yet. Coxy picked us all up at sunrise and we drove out the the boat ramp. We each caught a barra! He definitely knew all the spots and helped out with lures and how to cast etc etc. Saw many many huge crocs! Lots of wildlife action and birds everywhere. My dad loves birds and this was perfect for him too. A yummy lunch packed by Courtney. :)

The second time was with a photographer who was visiting from Sydney. We met Coxy down at the boat ramp at Celebrity Tree Park at sunrise. He took us out along the upper Ord River for some amazing photography locations! He was great with slowing down the boat when we needed to get shots and make sure the ripples in the water from the boat didn't interfere.

Highly recommend Northbound Charters! Will be back for sure.

We had a great extended half day tour down the Lower Ord as a Birthday present. The weather was amazing, we saw a lot of different wildlife, highlight being a 5m salt water croc. I caught my first ever Barra, and we had a great time fishing for them. Overall we recommend Northbound to anyone wanting a great nature adventure.

We had a great day fishing from the bank on the Pentecost river near El Questro. There was 13 of us travelling together including 6 kids and all different experience levels and Matty was so helpful putting a special trip together where we could all have a fish. We even caught a few barra, including a nice keeper that Matty cleaned for us, ready for the bbq when we got back. All up a super day out for the whole group. Definitely highly recommend!

We had such a good day fishing the Lower Ord. Matt was incredibly helpful and made sure my parents and myself could all land our first barra (and decent size too!) The other thing we loved was checking out some crocs and some awesome bird life. Would 100% recommend!

we fished the lower ord river with Matt from North Bound Charters , What a fantastic trip apart from the excellent fishing and advice the scenery and wildlife would have made the trip alone. I would highly recommend this trip even if your are not interested in fishing, some of the crocs we saw were massive

Having returned home after our Kimberley Adventures, we have reflected on the highlights of our trip. Barra fishing with Northbound Charters was such an amazing day reeling in Barra & cruising the Ord in all of its natural beauty. Matts knowledge & experience & Courtneys catering was a 10/10 for us. See you next time guys 👍🏻🎣🐊🦅🐟

We had a cracking day. Northbound was super organised, professional and the food was clean and fresh. A fantastic day fishing and sight seeing. The kids had a blast and Matt went to a lot of effort to make the day fun for everyone. The kids are still talking about it!
