If you have ever wanted to catch a barramundi, sail off into the
distance or explore the mysteries of the deep, then the Gove Peninsula is the
place for you.
the edge of the Arafura Sea, the waters around Gove and the nearby
islands have the reputation of being the best fishing in the world.
pristine beaches, crystal clear rivers, tropical bushland and lush
wetlands of East Arnhem Land
provide a vast and varied home to marine
life, birds, crocodiles, reptiles and along with native and introduced
animals and superb plant life.
beautiful and inviting environment, visitors need to take care and
minimise risks with marine stingers during the 'wet season', estuarine
crocodiles in coastal and inland waterways, buffaloes foraging in the
bush and wetland and snakes basking themselves in the sun.
Four-wheel driving and camping are popular past times with a
number of great camping spots close by.
