Cape Don Fishing Lodge


Cape Don Light is an active lighthouse located on Cape Don, at the tip of the Cobourg Peninsula, Northern Territory, Australia, in Garig Gunak Barlu National Park, marking the entrance to the Dundas Strait. It is Australia's northernmost traditional lighthouse. The station served on the important route to Darwin, between the peninsula and Melville Island. The tower was constructed in 1915-1917, during the "Golden Age of Australian Lighthouses" (1913–1920), and the tower was manned until 1983. During the entire period that the tower was manned it also maintained meteorological records which were well placed to assist in cyclone development tracking. The complex consists of the lighthouse, three residences and ancillary buildings.

A group of family and friends visited Cape Don several years ago on a fishing trip. This is a world class fishing location on the Cobourg Peninsula in Arnhemland. They had a couple of guides and several boats to make sure they reached the right locations for a special fishing adventure.

During the stay at Cape Don they caught all sorts of fish - Barramundi, Mangrove Jacks, Tuna, Spanish Mackerel etc - of course they only kept what was going to be cooked for dinner that evening. Sandflies are a bit of a problem so I suggest you go well prepared with strong insect repellent.  

Cape Done is a short flight from Darwin landing on a tree lined, dirt airstrip on the tip of the Cobourg Peninsula. This was a wonderful experience and we would like to go back again one day to enjoy this beautiful area - an perhaps catch another barra.
