Top End Million Dollar Fish competition kicks-off!


MILLION Dollar Fish, Australia’s richest fishing competition, will kick-off next month with an extra barramundi worth $1 million added to the competition.

With the odds of winning better than ever before, anglers from all over the country are expected to descend on the Territory’s Top End, when the free competition opens on Tuesday, 1 October.

A total of 126 barramundi will be tagged with a cash prize, including six red-tagged with the million-dollar jackpot, 100 worth $10,000, and a further 20 barramundi tagged with a purple charity tag, each worth $5,000 to be split between the angler and their choice of three Northern Territory-based charities.

The prize-wielding barramundi have been released into waters at Katherine, Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Darwin and the Tiwi Islands – where anglers who are registered for the competition can go to fish for the riches.


Northern Territory Major Events Company general manager Tim Watsford said Million Dollar Fish is positioning the Territory as one of Australia’s most renowned fishing destinations.

“The huge tidal rivers, scenic inland billabongs and mangrove-lined estuaries make the Top End an unrivalled, world-class fishing destination, catering to every type of fishing enthusiast.”

Million Dollar Fish is free to enter and participants must pre-register online at to be eligible for cash and sponsor prizes.
