Our Story

Skippers waves on grey background - Webs

Skippers is the realization of hopes and dreams. The original idea began as a hopeful conversation between brothers Ben & John Kelly daydreaming about returning to beachfront accommodation after a day of Dundee Beach fishing adventures. Soon after finding the perfect block John’s life was tragically cut short following a sudden accident.


Ben vowed to build the dream and opened the doors to ‘Skippers’ (John’s middle name) in July 2017. At the heart of Skippers is a brother’s love, family and recognition of significant people in our lives whose influence and shared wisdom shape us as people & enable us to better navigate life.


With world class fishing on our doorstep, tour options designed to showcase the region and a constant sea breeze on the back porch, Skippers is your NT sanctuary. Take a step back and enjoy the simple things in life.

Locals know the magic of fishing the Peron Islands, Fog Bay and the Finniss River and you don’t get much closer to the action than Skippers at Dundee. After a day exploring, return to air-conditioned, ensuited accommodation and relax poolside or on the covered deck.


Throw your catch on the BBQ or utilise our fully equipped kitchen and share stories of your day’s adventure. With 180° ocean views you may simply choose to stay closer to home and soak in veranda views of sunsets over the ocean.


Inspired by the unique flavour of the Northern Territory, Skippers at Dundee offers an authentic accommodation experience in the idyllic hideaway of Dundee Beach.
