Tubs and Jules,

This is a belated thanks for just an outstanding trip to your magnificent
Kimberley Coastal Camp from May 29 to June 2.  I was lucky enough to be part
of a group of 14 fishing mates.

From when we booked onto the Paspaley Pearls seaplane in Darwin and until we
left by seaplane the hospitality was beyond outstanding, nothing was ever a
problem and delivered with a smile, a joke or a great Aussie laugh. 

We had five days of action-packed fishing, catching heaps of fish, with the
group catching 308 fish (across 33 different species), every day was a new
experience with a different guide across the group.  To be able to pull up
on a secluded deserted beach, or on the stunning Steep Head Island and have
the fish we caught in the morning cooked on a camp stove washed down by a
crisp Pinot Grigio were money you can’t buy experiences.

Then each night the way you Jules were able to transform our catches into
the most amazing meals was amazing.  I hate to think what our 6-star
restaurant meals would have cost in a Sydney restaurant. Particularly the
mud crab feast on the last night. Let alone the inclusion of all the
beautiful wines, beers and spirits to keep us all socially excited across
the five days.

Tubs, I can safely say the entire group was very happy you recommended the
cultural walk, everyone left with a far deeper understanding of our first
nations people and their amazing history and heritage that you delivered
with such a deep knowledge, understanding and you could feel your personal
passion for the local tribe.  Quite inspirational.

We all loved the simplicity and uniqueness of our accommodation, and the
pool was a great way to refresh after the days fishing.  What more  could
you ask for!!!

And before closing I must call out Macca who I was lucky enough to have as
my guide for two days, he was an outstanding guide, who was patient and
willing to spend time making our group on each day better fisherman whilst
also catching some great fish.  I can honestly say I reckon I learnt more
from Macca in 2 days than the previous five trips to other places.
(Tubs, just for the record you weren’t a bad guide either)

KCC in simple terms exceeded all expectations and over delivered on all
fronts. What a fishing trip!!!! We will be back.

Thanks for everything.

Hi Tub & Jules

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude to you both for the most amazing stay at KCC. The amount of effort, energy, passion and patience that you showed was unbelievable and it was very special to be a part of this. Tub, I feel so fortunate to have heard just a few of the indigenous stories and I am honoured to have heard it from someone who is so connected and a part of the local leadership group. Jules, the food was out of this world and none of the detail or effort was lost on us. The group is getting together at my place soon and I will be “Cooking in Thongs” and sharing memories. I thoroughly enjoyed our sing-song and I only wish I had come better prepared. What a voice!

Tommy, Joel and Macca were outstanding. Their knowledge and patience was also endless and all of the boys appreciated their guidance, attention to detail and the long days they put in to ensure that we all had a fantastic time.

The experience has touched me deeply and it will be something that our group will talk about forever. What a great team and what a very special place. I will most certainly endeavour to make it back to see you guys.

All the best.

Dear Tub & Jules

We would like to thank you both for your remarkable hospitality during our stay at KCC.

Your never ending smiles, friendliness and entertaining chatter, throughout our stay, to all guests was amazing while at the same time working tirelessly as we all relaxed.

The professional knowledge and conduct of Maca, Tom & Joel was 1st class and we have no doubt Aliesa will benefit greatly from her time at KCC.

Our experience at KCC far outweighed our expectations and will remain at the top of our list of unique destinations that we have been lucky enough to visit in this country.

The mix of activities was well organised, and pleasing to see that KCC is suitable also for couples regardless of their fishing skills.

Jules, the food was amazing and you should be proud of your ability to prepare such amazing meals in such a remote area of the Kimberley… the cookbook has been read front to back already.

Tub, your passion for the Admiralty Gulf has certainly been an important power behind the progression of KCC… well done.

We hope that you both manage to take a regular break in the future, as we both know from personal experience, that burnout can creep up unexpectedly for self-operated businesses.

Jordie, thanks for assuring us of the suitability of KCC for Vicki’s enjoyment also.

We will return, if we aren’t on the black list, but until that time, we continue to rave to family, friends and others, about a special place that we truly loved.

Thanks again.

T&V June 2023

Dear Tub , Jules and the rest of the KCC team
Thank you for sharing your magical water wonderland with us and showing us some of your hidden gems.

It’s difficult to say what I enjoyed the most …The lunches on the beach of our catch of the day! The sightings of manta rays, dolphins, sharks, crocs, sea eagles, the mud crab netting, World class dinners or the bush walk and aboriginal art lesson. And I haven’t even mentioned the fishing !
All incredible experiences on their own, but collectively, a once in a lifetime trip!

KCC is not only a spectacular playground ,but your home  and I thank you for sharing it with us in such a warm and uncomplicated manner 
I loved it , as we all did, and I hope our paths cross again in the not too distant future.

Dear Jules & Tubs
Missing you guys and reminiscing about the incredible time we both had with you both and your wonderful crew. Brilliant memories and honestly can’t wait to come back and do it all again!
We are hooked and she can’t wait to catch another massive Barra!

Tub, Jules,

Thanks very much for a great time last week. It was a pleasure to be in your company and get to live out that bucket list experience. Look forward to catching up again. May 2022

Mick & Tanya

Thankyou to Jules Tubes  Chris and Jordie for a wonderful experience coming to KCC.

It was so much more than we ever imagined.

It is a very special place and that you enable us to share it with you is incredible.

The food was wonderful and I would like to know if Jules would share her recipe for red bean chocolate cake!

Cheers Ingrid and Cameron

Travelling with family and friends I have just visited one of the most beautiful places you can visit where days resemble postcards and nights show the beauty of the stars. The camp is run by Jules and Tubs; Jules delivering quality restaurant meals and Tubs memorable fishing and bush experiences. From the moment you arrive, in itself an adventure, you relax. Put your phones away as they don’t work out there and replace it with a cold drink and quickly the magic of the Kimberley will relax you; it is a very amazing place and one of the planets hidden gems. We stayed for 6 days and each day we went fishing or walking to art sites dating back 30,000 years. The fishing was exceptional and over the course of the week we caught Barramundi (one over the magical metre mark), Queen fish,Snapper, Trevally, Tuna and many more species. A few first time fishers amongst us quickly caught trophy fish and at no stage did we sit idle. After a long morning fishing we went to a nearby beach where Tubs and his helpers cooked the fresh catch in what was a day highlight; each day the fish was cooked differently and each day it was exceptional. After a days fishing we returned to camp where Jules and her small team took over. Whilst we cooled off in the pool with a drink in hand nibbles were served before we drifted off to shower and get ready for dinner. The food at the Camp was way above my expectations. Breakfast was hot or cold (up to you) and dinner was a sit-down extravaganza with food you would be happy to eat in the finest of restaurants. There was always more food than you can eat and the nearby fridges stocked for the biggest of thirsts. The camp itself is casual and clean; the perfect mix for total relaxation. The rooms are basic with a comfortable bed on a shell grit floor. The ceiling fan kept the temperature at a comfortable level to sleep and the mesh windows kept all bugs out; they were not an issue at all. Waking up to the sun rise in the Kimberley is something everybody should experience; it is WOW. It is a place we will definitely visit again and our thanks to Jules, Tubs, Troy, Jonas, Brenton, Katie and Simon for making our stay so memorable. April 2019

Well, I hardly know where to begin.  We’ve returned to civilization and it has hit like a sledge hammer.  Jacko & I wanted to write, to again say a very special “Thank you” and express our huge gratitude for the welcoming way you embraced our crew.  We truly had the most wonderful time.  The memories, giggles, fishing, adventures, beach lunches, Jules incredibly delicious food, the rock art walk, crabbing, the night around the camp fire singing with Jules …. the stories … the list could go on forever …  will remain indelible in our minds for life.  You are both – a truly unique duo and an absolute asset to the Kimberley region.  What a magical part of the world it is – and it now, certainly has a very special place in our hearts.

We left with happy hearts – on a trip of a lifetime …. But I know that one day we’ll be back.

Our very best wishes to you both and your KCC family.

Take wonderful care

Kind Regards

We had the trip of a lifetime when we stayed with Tub & Jules at Kimberley Coastal Camp in June 2018.
Great fishing. Fabulous cooking.

Eric & Jill Jespersen

Had  beautiful lunch with you guys at KCC while we were camped at Port Warrander in Aug 2018. A Wonderful, memorable experience for us and we will be back.

Gaye & Toby Curtis
When we were considering a trip to the Kimberley, we read all the reviews about K.C.C. and everybody said what a magnificent place it was – well they were right! We have just had the absolute pleasure of spending 7 days in the most beautiful part of the Kimberley. From the moment we stepped onto the beach from the Float Plane, to our departure in the helicopter, we were totally blown away by the scenery, the fishing, the food and the hospitality of the K.C.C. team. Tub and Jules really are two of the most amazing people we have ever met – we only spent 7 days with them but left feeling that we had known them for years! Everybody raves about Jules’ meals and so they should – the food really is superb! Tub is so much fun to be with both out on the water and around the camp and his passion for the Kimberley, it’s people and their artwork showed a genuine appreciation of the local indigenous culture. Lauren, Jack, Caitlin and Brenton looked after our every need and we felt like “royalty”. Jack helping Jo catch her first ever Barra was a great moment to cherish! There was so many highlights – big Queenies, big Tuna, “Kimberley Carp”, mud crabs, pulling up a croc in the crab net, Barra fishing at dawn – but the most enjoyable time was spent sitting down in the evening with great people, a beautiful meal, a few cold ales, lots of chatter, deep and meaningful discussions and heaps of laughter while watching the magnificent sunsets. Our thanks go to all the K.C.C. team for making this a holiday we will never forget. Kimberley Coastal Camp truly is an amazing part of the world and hopefully we will be back again in the not too distant future!

What a Hoot! Best week ever, fished, crabbed, laughed, drank! Food was amazing and one of the highlights! Love you both.

For thirty years we dreamed of a far north fishing adventure – that once in a lifetime experience, and after arriving by helicopter, Kimberley Coastal Camp did not disappoint. Under Tubs and his offsider Russ’ expert guidance, we caught or collected around 30 species of fish, oysters and mud crabs using their quality equipment and well appointed boats. The boys are quick with a knot and the bait supply.

Jules transformed our catches into five-star restaurant cuisine, deliciously prepared and presented, and Tubs didn’t do a bad job with the lunches while we on the water, arriving on deserted islands and beaches and cooking our morning catch. The open bar package contained quality beers, wines and spirits which complimented the days on the water, the beautiful meals and evenings around the campfire.

The cultural walk was a highlight – with Tubs passing on his knowledge and passion. With this he keeps the stories alive and they were incredible, and so genuine.

The accommodation was chic rustic and comfortable in every way with discrete natural ornamental touches throughout.

We will re-live the experiences from this trip for many years to come – big fish, songs around the camp, great stories and laughter every day and night. Thanks Tubs, Jules and Russ for giving us the greatest fishing experience of our lives/

Ross – Group (8) Fishermen 2018

Spent a week with my husband, his 3 brothers and their wives, at the KCC and loved every minute. Worth the five flights to get there and then five more to come home. Lots of fishing, mud crabs and deserted island visits. Fabulous meals created by Jules each day from our catches and lots of laughs from Tub. Jonas and Adele also made us welcome and we didn’t “want’ for anything. So well looked after that it was hard to come home to reality. The camp retains it’s remote bush feel but still offers clean rooms and amenities. Feel privileged to have been able to experience this rugged and beautiful part of Australia for a week.

J Spalding

We recently spent 2 nights at KCC as part of a 5 night helicopter safari and it was the highlight of our trip. Thank you so much to Jules and Tubs and your offsiders, our time with you was truely a memory of a lifetime. Ray loved his day fishing and I certainly enjoyed my day relaxing. Great company, great food and a great time in a wonderful part of Australia: what more could we want. Thank you again.

Ray and Val Down
First and foremost this was the best fishing trip I have been on, we were a group of 8, most of us have done fishing trips together in the past, so we know a good trip from a not as good trip.
KCC was the best so far for me, the fishing was varied and great fun, the crew we had were all well experienced and good guys, we caught many different species of fish which made it even more exciting.
But in some ways it was the non fishing activities that made the trip so memorable.
On most days at about 4pm we would head back to camp for snacks, a swim and a few beers (its thirsty work catching all these fish!) In the evening a gourmet meal was prepared by Jules, most times this was our own fresh catch of the day…..what more could you ask for?
One worthwhile experience for me was the aboriginal art walk, Tubs is the local expert and took us into places most people would never find and told us incredible stories about the history of the land.
Not to be outdone by Tubs, Jules is not only a chef extraordinaire but the girl can sing as well (this will embarrass her I’m sure) There is a wonderful campfire site just off the main living pavilion where we would retire to after dinner for way too many wines and best fish of the day stories (some were true!) this was where Jules if coerced enough would unlimber her guitar and sing us some classics.
Our sleeping accommodation was very comfortable and as close to sleeping under the stars that you could get, even the ablutions had a view not to be missed!
All in all it was an awesome trip, much more than your standard fishing camp, this is a 5 star experience, thanks so much to Jules, Tubs and crew for a great week, I certainly plan to return soon, cheers Rob

The Kimberley Coastal Camp was perfect and a great place to stay on our first night. Very relaxing and the best hosts and the food was close to the best we have had. Jules and Tub and Macca were so much fun and relaxed really quick. It was great that everyone including Dan and Liam had dinner together. The hike to rock art was amazing and fishing with Tub loads of fun. We would love to return to the Coastal Camp sometime in the future.

Janine Pitman

I had a fantastic time. Good fishing, great company, relaxing, exceptional cooking. I would love to come back with Jane in near future.

Thanks, Tab


Thank you for your hospitality on our recent trip to your camp It was one of the best trips I have been involved in. You and your staff went out of your way to keep everybody involved in the activities provided.

Whether it was fishing, checking out the local aboriginal rock art or just having a laugh around the camp fire, it was a fantastic experience. The fishing was extraordinary. I caught my first Barramundi and Spanish Mac and the morning we went mud crabbing with Tubby was the one of the funniest experiences of my life, Me and a few mates are talking about planning a trip back to your camp in the near future Once again thank you for a wonderful experience and hope to be back there soon.


We had an awesome time at KCC.  You know the fishing is good when even the fish are smiling.  Really enjoyed the experience, you should be proud of what you are achieving.


Thanks again for a brilliant week, it was without question the greatest holiday I have had, brilliant company, incredible location, amazing food and plenty of laughs.


We were welcomed with open arms at Kimberley Coastal Camp.  Jules and Tubby looked after us so well.  We fished, collected oysters, caught mud crabs, explored beautiful unspoilt islands and enjoyed the spoils in the evening.  A genuine feast!

We had great times and many laughs.  But the best thing is we all share a love of this spectacular country. I do hope to join you again one day, but my memories will last forever.

A genuine feast!

Coming from Sydney I was not sure what to expect. The natural beauty witnessed from the Coastal Camp was stunning. We walked 30 minutes to witness Aboriginal rock art and their truly amazing culture. Its great exercise and an experience you will not find in Pitt Street Sydney. Caught plenty of massive fish, and working for Toyota I can say “oh what a feeling’. Food was better than the best Sydney restaurants. Go and experience it.

Paul Williams, “a convert to the Kimberley Region”

Fantastic Trip. Great food, fish, and hospitality. Keep up the great work! P.S. One of my favourite Kimberley trips ever!

The camp has given more than I ever expected, the top things I’m taking away though are my new friends, our insane fishing adventure, the fiery sunsets beaming down over the blue ocean and of course, the rugged rocky landscape – Life changing. Thank you KCC for the experience of my lifetime. You are all wonderful.
