Crab Claw Island Resort

Nestled on the water’s edge, Crab Claw Island Resort is a relaxing escape from the everyday. The complex has elevated cabins connected by walkways through the trees and palm gardens, refreshing swimming pools, an elevated open restaurant with views across the harbour, boat ramp, wildlife and natural beauty galore.

Crab Claw Island’s ‘Breezes’ restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving a wide selection of tasty, al a carte meals. The fully licensed bar holds a selection of wines, icy cold beers and soft drinks that will quench the thirst and cleanse the pallet of any weary traveller.

Lovely 'outback NT' experience. Crab Claw is one of those places to just relax and dwindle away time, either fishing or relaxing by the pool. We stayed here for 6 nights, but could have easy stayed longer. The staff are so relaxed and friendly, nothing is a bother.

Watch the IFISHTV video

One young man who has seen his share of tough unwell times, Matthew Adams, had a long held Wish and when ‘Starlight Wishes’ got in touch with Paul Worsteling, the rest as they say is history. IFISHTV got together with the Outback Wrangler, Nat-Geo WILD’s, Matt Wright and the Crab Claw Island Resort in the Northern Territory and set in motion the making of Matthew’s dream to come true. This fabulously heart-warming and fun episode of IFISH with Tackle World, set in the flood plains of Australia’s Top End, has at its heart the iconic species that captivates many, the famed barramundi.

Matthew & his Barra!
