A million reasons to visit Darwin

Spend your Christmas break fishing in Darwin.

Christmas has come early! Australia’s richest fishing competition, ‘Million Dollar Fish’ have thrown another 12, $10,000 fish into the water in the Darwin Region – the first time more fish have been released once a season has started.

Dubbed ‘All I want for Christmas is a Million Dollar Fish’, the campaign encourages more people to set sail and hit the water for the chance to catch a prize-tagged fish, with hopefully several fishos bagging an early Christmas present.

Northern Territory Major Events Company CEO Tim Watsford declares there has never been a better time to go fishing in the Northern Territory. “The Million Dollar Fish competition is just one of the Territory’s unique attractions and plays a significant role in luring visitors to the Top End. This new incentive gives people 12 more $10,000 reasons to visit,” he said. “Now is the perfect time to book a holiday to the NT and experience our pristine, world-class fishing locations.”

Million Dollar Fish Season 7 started on 1 October 2021 and will finish on 31 March 2022. To claim a prize-tagged fish or be in the running to win fantastic prizes as part of the monthly Lucky Prize Pool, you must be registered via www.milliondollarfish.com.au
