“Not bad”
Reviewed 3 March 2010

The trip was pleasant and the food really nice. But what we found the hardest was that dinner is always served way too late.

Reviewed 5 November 2009

After being encouraged from a mate to go fishing at Melville island i was interested but didn't know how good it was going to be and how much of a life changing experience it was. The fishing and food was out of the world. From the the professional crew, boats and fishing gear through to the peaceful and completely natural location, i was blown away. The meals at night while watching the sunset was the freshest and most tasty seafood i have ever eaten. I though i would struggle being away from my family for 5 days but the intensity of the fishing and even catching the biggest Barramundi for the week at 87 cms, time went by so fast and so did the nights after having a few beers and talking about the days fishing. The managers are very special people who really have the gift of customer service and knowing how to fish too. They really care about everything from every meal, every hour out in the boats, and to the service they and their staff offer. All i can think about at nights is fishing as only got back 4 days ago and how to tell my family that we have to head back there next year as have to cancel trip to fiji. This may be a work in progress for me but i cant get the lodge out of my mind.
