What a fantastic place to go in the middle of Victoria's winter. Warm weather, great fishing, friendly hosts and guides who know the rivers and reefs like the back of their hands. This is our 4 th time at Clearwater and it is an experience we always look forward to.

The four of use went fishing to relax from a busy year. It was an incredibly relaxing bonding environment. Great for business partners to unwind.

Have just been to Clearwater Fishing Lodge for the 3rd time and now booking a 4th ... fishing unbelievable. A friend and I caught 120 substantial fish over the weekend. Clinton was amazing and knew all the good spots; food was incredible and hosts Kerri-Ann and Michael were great. There can't be a better fishing lodge anywhere!

I recently visited Clearwater Island Lodge and I have to say, it was the best experience of my life. The food was sensational, the fishing was off the rails and the hospitality was unreal. Already planning to come back again. Thanks to Mick, Kerry and all of the crew. See you again soon. PS Jamis is an amazing chef!

I recently stayed as part of a group at the lodge for a 4 day fishing adventure. From the moment we were collected at the airport we were made to feel so comfortable by Kerry and Michael. After some casting lessons, wonderful nibbles, a fantastic 3 course dinner, lovely wine and a good sleep, the action began the following morning...

Myself and my family spent the last week up at Clearwater lodge. It was fantastic! The guides know the place like the backs of their hands. We were taken to the best spots which yielded some great catches, estuary, creek and blue water areas. We got Barra, GT, Mangrove Jack and many more, the list goes on. The cooking by...

The best fishing experience you can have, first class guides who go out of their way to make sure your time on the water is exceptional. The lodges provided five star meals with more than comfortable accommodation. Highly recommended to anyone wanting the perfect getaway.
