Turn north at waypoint on Arnhem Highway onto Point Stuart Road. (Dirt Road for 53km). Travel north of 40km then turn left for 3 km then left again for another 10km on Harold Knowles Road.

Shady Camp, located along Point Stuart Road, is one of the Territories best known Barramundi fishing locations. There is a boat ramp onto the lower reaches of the Mary River and another above the barrage.
The viewing platform across the Mary River floodplain allows travellers to observe the abundant wildlife of the area, including saltwater crocodiles. Shady Camp is among fresh water billabongs with paperbark and monsoon forests, making it a treat to explore.
