Dundee Beach - Cities, Towns and Localities

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 Darwin’s 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

The road is mainly bitumen, with about 40 km of gravel. During the wet season, access to the area (December to March) can sometimes be cut for up to 48 hours.
