Enjoy The Cape Don Experience

The ‘Cape Don Experience’ on Cobourg Peninsula is one of Australia’s best kept fishing secrets. You will be transported to a place where it seems that time has stood still.

Guest Peter Elben from Glenelg explains: “Each time a place as beautiful as Cape Don is discovered, the word spreads quickly and these places are inundated with adventurous Australians looking for a challenge to conquer by vehicle. Cape Don is not like that. In fact, there is no way that you can get here by car, no matter how hi-tech or expensive your 4WD is. Cape Don is one of the finest examples of virgin beauty protected under Australian law. The Cape Don Experience will suit people who love fishing and seek the unadulterated experiences of life in a comfortable, clean and fun environment. If this is you then CDE is near Utopia!”

Cape Don Experience is the perfect place to brush up on your fishing techniques and perhaps even learn some new tricks. Just to tickle your taste buds some of the species that can be found at and around Cape Don include but are not limited to; GTs, golden trevally, turrum trevally, big eye trevally, queenies, spotted mackerel, Spanish mackerel, grey mackerel, barramundi, coral cod, tricky snapper, golden snapper, threadfin salmon, big eyed salmon, mangrove jack, Queensland groper, estuary cod, coral trout, cobia, juvenile black marlin, sailfish, javelin, northern blue tuna, long tail tuna, mack tuna, barracuda, giant herring, long toms, black jew and of course mud crabs. When you have finished fishing for the day what better place to come back to than Cape Don’s charming and comfortable heritage listed homestead.  The beautifully maintained bedrooms open onto wide sweeping verandas, providing the perfect place to just chill out. Others prefer to relax in the spa or over a game of pool.

The friendly team at Cape Don Experience endeavour to provide all guests with an enjoyable and memorable ‘Cape Don Experience.’
