The Ultimate Anglers Retreat – North West Australia
The Kimberley Coastal Camp is one of the most exclusive travel fishing destinations in the top end of Australia. Isolated and pristine, the focus is on creating an intimate atmosphere while reducing impact on the local environment.
Nestled on the pristine shores of the Admiralty Gulf opposite the Mitchell Plateau in Western Australia, the Kimberley Coastal Camp can’t be accessed by road. Arrival is either by a spectacular floatplane experience with an impressive water landing or an exhilarating helicopter transfer directly onto the beach in front of the camp.
Guests can expect to encounter endangered Quolls, Olive Pythons, Sea Eagles and numerous other native animals in the vicinity known to the traditional landowners as ‘Yalrundair’.
The camp is extremely isolated with access limited to a privileged few. To get to your destination a float plane and helicopter are essential.
Extraordinary Fishing Experience
Setting the benchmark in remote location tropical sports fishing, Kimberley Coastal Camp is situated amidst the pristine waters of the Admiralty Gulf in the far north Kimberley region of Western Australia. Considered universally to be one of the best fishing regions in Australia.
The Admiralty Gulf is recognised as one of the best fishing destinations in Australia with a wide variety of species and fishing options to enjoy. Kimberley Coastal Camp is one of the very few fishing tour operations that include tackle on an unconditional basis. No cost for loss or breakages.
This is a real positive when one considers the possibility to go through some tackle loss given the amazing variety of large predatory fish on offer. In any one day it’s possible to catch a variety of fish from Barramundi to Blue Fin Tuna.
Huge tidal rivers together with mangrove lined creeks, estuaries, flats, offshore reefs and islands as well as crystal clear blue waters; ensure an exciting range of fishing options. Kimberley Coastal Camp is one of very few fishing destinations in Australia able to offer such diverse variety to the travelling fisherman.

Fish all day, every day or maybe after a morning’s fishing take your catch ashore on a deserted island fringed by Boab trees and have your host and guide cook it for you ‘bush style’ on the coals. Take some time to snare a few succulent mud crabs from the mangrove-lined creeks and have the chef prepare them to your liking for your evening meal.
The camp operates on a simple catch and release format so only those fish destined for the table will be kept. Sustainable fishing practices are promoted at all times.
