The reefs are located across the greater Darwin region, with two between North Gutter and Lee Point, one in the Dundee region, and one between the Vernon Islands and Cape Hotham.

In an early Christmas presents to recreational fishers, the artificial reef coordinates have been released and included in the publication of the annual Tomorrow’s Fishing Starts Today booklet as well as the app and online.

As the largest single investment into recreational fishing in the Northern Territory with a life span of well over 100 years, the project is funded from the Territory Labor Governments $50 million RecFishing Futures Program.
