Welcome to Perry's on the Daly
Barramundi Sportsfishing and Top End Adventure

Dick Perry's association with the Northern Territory's Fishing tourism dates back to the early 1980's. As part of a successful fishing tackle business (est.1976) and a marine dealership in Sydney, Dick developed PERRYS BARRAMUNDI FISHING SAFARIS'.

Perry's organized and conducted Coach Fishing Safaris to the Gulf, Northern Territory and Kimberleys to fish for barramundi and held one of the first commercial tour-operators license to fish for Barramundi in World Heritage Area, Kakadu N.T.

As a result of this long attachment to the NT and fishing tourism, "PERRY'S ON THE DALY P/L" was established. The opportunity to purchase 1000 acres right on the banks of the Daly River in 1993, was too good to miss as Dick and Carol had formed a love of the area and the "Mighty Daly River".
