Located approximately 145 km south west of Darwin, at the tip of Fog Bay on the west coast
side, is the popular coastal settlement of Dundee Beach, a
favourite weekend destination for the Darwins Top End residents, especially those who
own their own beach shack.
The township is a popular recreational spot for
fishing (especially saltwater barramundi), boating and walks along the sprawling
sandy beach running for several kilometres along the coast.
The Finnis River boasts excellent barramundi and crab
fishing. Popular for reef and pelagic fishing are the Perron Islands located
approximately 50 km south.
The area is surrounded by monsoon rainforest that
is home to a variety of wildlife, including some unique birdlife such as the
Rainbow Pitta and the Rose-crowned Pigeon. The region also support extensive
wading bird habitat, particularly Shoal Bay to the north with Grose Island, the
Perron Islands in Anson Bay to the south, as well as Fog Bay. Perron Islands
contains the Territory's largest and only pelican rookery.1
