Recreational fishing on Aboriginal land

Gove Peninsula area

The Gove Peninsula in northeast Arnhem Land includes Nhulunbuy, Yirrkala and Melville Bay.

Many of these intertidal fishing spots lie over Aboriginal land.

You don't need a permit to fish in these waters if you are a recreational fisher.

You should respect the traditional owners’ code of conduct. You can read the code of conduct in the Fishing Northeast Arnhem Land guide (984.3 kb).

To find out more go to the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation website.
