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.

    A unique and outstanding scenic and cultural experience, a glimpse into places of exquisite beauty, sustaining a culture that has survived and evolved over 60,000 years. Our Outback Spirit guide/driver and the guides at the lodges were first rate, sharing their considerable knowledge with us and ensuring everyone was comfortable and able to participate in the activities. Accommodation (all ensuite rooms), meals, attention to passenger comfort as well as the activities were top notch. The hotel staff at the lodges were welcoming, friendly and went the extra yards to give us the best possible experience.
    We were on the first tour of the year, and because the roads were still water logged, we were flown from lodge to lodge in 10 seater planes, avoiding long drives and allowing us to enjoy the spectacle of Arnhem land from the air.
    This year Outback Spirit are including a selection of spirits, wines and beers as well as soft drinks, to complement the excellent meals. The travellers were mostly “from an older demographic”. The walks were not arduous, the longest was about 4km, but they were on bush tracks, over rocky ground and not suited to wheelchairs or walking frames. A guide was always there to lend a hand to the less nimble and a shorter option was available to those who chose not to complete the trek.
    It is not a cheap holiday, you are enjoying the expertise of the guides, excellent accommodation and meals, comfortable well-maintained vehicles in places where it costs to bring all supplies by barge, truck or small plane. That is all the food and drinks, (at one lodge also drinking water), spare parts for vehicles, for air conditioners, all other equipment and consumibles needed for passenger comfort every day from May till September.
    There is no mobile phone or internet connection from leaving Nhulunbuy till the final lodge before Darwin. And if you want intense physical activity or night time entertainment, it’s not the tour for you.

    We originally booked to go on a half day charter in November but due to our son breaking his arm, Jess and Shaun were very flexible in allowing us to change our date. This resulted in us going out in November and doing a full day tour with half day fishing and visit to Banu Banu resort for lunch.

    We had the best time and were very fortunate to have the boat to ourselves with Shaun and Jess. Shaun knows all the great fishing spots and we managed to get some huge jewfish and red emperors. our boys aged 8 and 10 loved it.

    We definitely recommend booking with OBJ for your fishing charter experience.

    Highly recommend this experience when visiting Nhulunbuy. Well organised operation with personalised touch. Great facilities on the island for day visitors including beach shelters and kayaks. Meal and cocktails at restaurant were great. Views from the island are breathtaking and the water is perfect for swimming.

    I have used Black Diamond Aviation on a number of occasions. The owner Matt is extremely helpful along with all the pilots. There is nothing they won't do to assist you and make your trip as comfortable as possible. Safety is their number one objective and this is very comforting in a light plane. BDA, regularly service all the local communities and have excellent local knowledge. They operate from Nhulunbuy airport. Recommended.
