About Us

Top End Barra Fishing is owned and operated by Rohan Soulsby. Rohan has been
an avid fisherman his whole life, with his fondest earliest memories being as a five
year-old fishing for trevally off the jetty at Lakes Entrance in Victoria.
It was this early love for fishing that spawned a lifetime of fishing experiences
throughout the East Coast and Top End of Australia. Rohan previously operated a
charter fishing business in Port Stephens in NSW, but it was from many trips to his
beloved NT over 20 years that Rohan and his family decided to make the move in
2014 to Darwin and purchase Top End Barra Fishing, the longest owned and
continually operated charter fishing business in the NT.
Since then, Top End Barra Fishing has gone from strength to strength, with a
reputation not only for quality catches using quality fishing tackle but also for a
great time. Rohan’s extensive knowledge of fishing techniques, and of course,
where the fish are biting ensure that a day (or two, or three, or more….) with him
provides lifetime memories.
A great day out is guaranteed with Top End Barra Fishing.

“We had an amazing day. Rohan was very professional including his pick up and drop off door service. We where very please to land a couple barra in the off season. His knowledge of knowing where the fish species were, that we were after was outstanding. His equipment is great and boat was very neat and tidy, comfortably fitting 5 people. We went with his recommendation of when to go out fishing and it was a perfect day out on the water. Thoroughly recommended his service!” – Ben Scarlett.

“Awesome day fishing with Rowan. we were three newbies and he was very patient and made us feel like pros. Lots of barramundi due to his great local knowlege and fish finding technology. We even saw crocs, rays and a well trained sea eagle. We will be back” – Drew Unsworth.
