Welcome to Sweers Island


Sweers Fishing Adventures

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 like. As well as fishing, you can explore the island's history, swim off the sandy beaches, and enjoy the rich birdlife and marine life. Experienced snorkellers might like to bring a mask and fins in case the water is clear during your visit.

Sweers Island Resort is now closed.
A caretaker is in residence and there is no access to bar, fuel or any of the facilities.
This includes No Camping.

We are now taking bookings for the 2018 season. The tariff is $385 per person per day ( half price for school-age children) - this includes Accommodation, Meals & Boats (including fuel, bait & handline tackle).
