Alongside Wastewater Australia, our team at Garden Master fitted a cutting edge wastewater treatment plant for OutbackSpirit Tours, at the Arnhem Land Barramundi Lodge. The lodge is one of the Territory’s premier lodges for Barramundi fishing, enjoying an incredible location along an escarpment approximately 18 km’s out of Maningrida. It has been completely redeveloped with the guest accommodation each being refurbished with complete luxury furnishings, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning, front deck and of course our state of the art wastewater treatment plant.
The lodge offers unique fishing licences, allowing access to some of Arnhem Land’s most pristine and remote waterways. After you've partaken in fantastic reacreational fishing, the in-house chef will prepare freshly caught Barramundi for you. The restaurant features a large deck and boasts sensational views, the perfect spot for a magical sunset over the Tomkinson River floodplains.
Due to the Eco-sensitive nature of the location the treatment plant had to be capable of producing a consistently high quality effluent with nutrient removal capabilities. Reliability was another factor in the design.The treatment plant was designed to minimise power usage as the resort runs on a combination of solar power and an on-site generator. Along with the main treatment plant, 3 individual pump stations were installed around the site.
The Arnhem Land Barramundi Lodge is available solely for fishing during the months of March & April, and October & November each year.This is due to the water temperatures increasing and the barramundi being at their most active. For the months of May through to September the lodge is exclusively used to accommodate tours operated by Outback Spirit. The abundance of culture, breath-taking landscapes and of course prime recreational fishing, makes the lodge truly one of a kind.
