Australia

We offer not only some of the best big game hunting in all of Australia, but some of the most affordable dangerous game hunts in the world! We hunt a huge concession known as Arnhem land that is closed to public access without express permission from the tribal Elders. This region has not been hunted commercially in 25 years. Tremendous trophy potential exists for Australian Buffalo, Wild Boar and Wild Oxen. Compare hunting our Buffalo with an African Buffalo hunt and you will quickly realize why so many world Hunters are wanting to come to Australia!




Our hunting concession is located in one of the most remote areas left on the continent of Australia. No grid electricity, no domestic stock, no agricultural development, no fences (of any description), no man made water points, no wind mills, no cattle gates, no nothing.

We have several small community areas, where our indigenous peoples live in small clusters of houses scattered throughout the concession. There is no access to this area to any non-indigenous persons without express authority from the Elders of the communities or as clients of our business.

This is pure unadulterated wilderness, not unlike the Selous or Masailand of Tanzania.

Our camp is set up similar to a remote area African tented camp. We use heavy duty, two roomed canvas wall tents with steel framed beds, proper mattresses and all linens. Each tent has clothes storage cupboards, battery lights, table and chairs, wash basin and mirror. Each client tent also has it's own private tented facilities and shower.

We have a large canopy, which has a kitchen in the back with fridge and freezer capacity, and a full time camp cook who provides all meals and maintains a clean camp. The mess canopy has weed mat flooring and insect proof, removable panels.

Aside from our full-time Professional Hunters, we also have an accomplished and seasoned bow hunting PH available for specialist bow hunts. Therefore, we can cope with small groups of 2, 4, 6 and 8 hunters. NOTE: All of our hunts are strictly conducted within all acceptable standards for ethical hunting.
