So make this Christmas one for the memory books with plenty of red tags swimming around out there. This includes 94 barra worth $10,000, and 11 worth a million bucks.

Remember, someone is guaranteed to win a million dollars this season, and the big one could be reeled in anywhere with red-tagged barra released across Top End waterways. These include Darwin, Kakadu, Tiwi Islands, Katherine and Arnhem Land regions.
