About Us

My wife Jodi and I have owned and operated Kakadu Fishing Tours since 2004. We moved to the N.T from Adelaide with our 2 children Maddie and Ryan in 2003 to pursue a more relaxed and enjoyable lifestyle. The opportunity to purchase this well established business in Kakadu felt like it was ‘meant to be’.

I grew up in Darwin and moved to Adelaide to finish school in my teens. I regularly visited family living in Jabiru from 1991 onwards and this is where I developed my obsession for Barra fishing. As a keen fisherman in South Australian waters I couldn’t believe the contrast when fishing in Kakadu. The adrenalin fuelled fishing this area has to offer still excites me to this day. The ability for me to share this with people from all over the world is without doubt ‘my perfect job’.
