Sports Tuition specialises in fishing and adventure programs and prides itself on introducing children to the art of recreational fishing. Through programs such as school camps and holiday camps, children have the opportunity to independently experience boating and fishing, quite often for the very first time. Sports Tuition also facilitates family-based fishing programs which cover a variety of fishing and boating aspects.
Sports Tuition was established in 2001 by Steve Wilkes, who is a fully-qualified outdoor recreation instructor, as well as having 15 years primary school teaching experience. Steve has been a fishing scribe for Bush'n'Beach Fishing Magazine.

McKenzie Racing F1 Powerboat Team
It’s fast… it’s exciting… it's spectacular racing at its best!!
The McKenzie Racing F1 Powerboat Team competes in the Formula 1 category of the Australian Formula Powerboat Grand Prix and selected Australian Powerboat Association Races. Since 2010, the team has been supported by The Haines Group who supply them with Suzuki Marine Oils.
Damien McKenzie, McKenzie Racing team driver, is highly impressed with the performance of the Suzuki Marine Oil.
“The conditions that a F1 race engine must perform under are extreme. Speeds can reach up to 130mph and the engine is spinning in excess of 10,000rpm so the oil must perform or engine failure will occur. Since we began using Suzuki Marine Oil we have never had a lubrication failure. This speaks for itself. I believe Suzuki Marine Oil is the best.”

Tiwi Islands Adventures
The 'Tiwi Islands' are made up of Melville and Bathurst Island and are situated 60km north of Darwin, Northern Territory. It is the home of the Tiwi people and the home of Tiwi Islands Adventures.
The area is known for its tropical climate, its small and friendly Indigenous population and its great fishing! The islands are not open to the public for tourism, except for organised trips operated by Tiwi Islands Adventures.
The remote and remarkable area consists of thousands of square kilometres of eucalypt, paperbark and monsoon vine forest, coastal wetlands, secluded waterfalls and deserted beaches. An extensive array of mangrove lined river and creek systems, sand flats, bays, inlets and coastal reefs, all abundant with marine life, means the Tiwi Islands are also an unspoiled angler’s paradise.
Access to the Tiwi Islands is via a short, scenic private charter flight by light aircraft from Darwin. Find out more by visiting their website: www.tiwiadventures.com.au
