Sweers Island is situated in Australia's southern Gulf of Carpentaria, 20 miles off the coast, directly north of Burketown. In 1987 Tex & Lyn Battle, along with Ray & Salme Atherinos, laid the foundations for the present resort. Tex & Lyn are still here and welcome visitors to their island home. Many return on a regular basis. Join us and experience the magic that is Sweers.
Sweers is famous for fishing, but also offers enjoyment for the whole family, with miles of golden beaches, forests, mangroves and rocky cliffs to explore, which provide homes to a myriad of wildlife including Dolphins, Turtles, Dugongs and over one hundred bird species.
You can also become immersed in the rich history of the island and walk in the footsteps of the traditional owners, the Kaiadilt people, as well as Matthew Flinders, John Lort Stokes and William Landsborough. From relaxation to action-packed fishing adventures, you are sure to enjoy your time here at Sweers Island Resort.
