Limmen Bight Marine Park

This special part of the Gulf of Carpentaria is rich in marine life, including the Northern Territory's (NT) largest population of dugongs and three different species of rare pipefish.

You may see dolphins and several turtles, including the flatback, green, hawksbill and olive ridley turtles.

Keep a lookout for freshwater sawfish.

Limmen Bight is popular among self-reliant anglers who bring in large catches of mud crabs, barramundi and prawns.

Saltwater crocodiles inhabit coastal waters. Do not swim and Be Crocwise at all times.
