Sweers Island

Sweers Island has miles of golden beaches, blue waters, a wealth of history, and a huge variety of bird life. Although it is a fisherman's paradise, it offers enjoyment for the whole family.

Sweers is located in Australia's southern Gulf of Carpentaria approximately 30 km off the coast, directly north of Burketown.

The island is surrounded by acres of rock reef, with some coral, much of which has never seen a fishing line.  You can fly-fish off the beach or troll from the boat.  We cater for keen fishing groups and families. You're welcome to visit for the day or stay as long as you wish.
