Sweers Island has miles of golden beaches, blue waters, a wealth of history, and a huge variety of bird life. Although it is a fisherman's paradise, it offers enjoyment for the whole family. Sweers is located in Australia's southern Gulf of Carpentaria approximately 30 km off the coast, directly north of Burketown. The island is surrounded by acres of rock reef, with some coral, much of which has never seen a fishing line. You can fly-fish off the beach or troll from the boat. We cater for keen fishing groups and families. You're welcome to visit for the day or stay as long as you like. As well as fishing, you can explore the island's history, swim off the sandy beaches, and enjoy the rich birdlife and marine life.
COVID-19 UPDATE JUNE 23RD 2022 -
WE ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE 2022 SEASON.
PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A BOOKING.
It is with extreme regret that we are going to have to increase our rates for this season – you can call it a fuel levy, or food subsidy…those prices have been increasing by 20 – 30% and we are simply unable to absorb the continuing increased costs.
We have always set our price at the beginning of the year and held it firm throughout the season, however this year, skyrocketing prices of food and fuel have made it necessary for us to increase our price by approx 5%. We regret this decision but it has been forced upon us and we thank you for your understanding.
This brings the tariff for 2022 to $465 per person per day/night.
School Attendance children are half price.
NOTE THAT REGARDLESS OF CHANGING GOVERNMENT POLICY - ALL GUESTS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED (INCLUDING BOOSTERS IF ELIGIBLE) AND PROOF OF SAME WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE ARRIVAL.
