Fishing enthusiasts will find plenty of opportunities to ply their craft on the waterways surrounding Burketown. Whether you are on the Albert, Nicholson, Leichhardt, or Gregory river, there's a catch to be found.
Remember, Barramundi prefer warmer weather; they love live bait but also respond very well to hard-bodied lures.
If you want some expert guidance, ask one of the Yagurli tour guides or book a Fishing Charter.

Gliders and other Cloud lovers
If there has been a brisk sea breeze blowing through Burketown all day and the fridges in the Burketown Pub have frosted over, then there is a very good chance that the next day, you will see a Morning Glory Cloud roll its away towards town.
It is bitumen from Burketown all the way to Cloncurry and is about 500km, though with long, straight stretches it feels a lot longer. Cloncurry itself has some great driving trails and you will need to drop into the Cloncurry Unearthed Visitor Centre to get a map, plus it’s a nice spot to sit down and relax for a bit.
