Itinerary Only 75 – 90 minutes drive from Darwin on your way to/ back from Kakadu National Park is a wetland experience not to be missed.
Corroboree Billabong is part of the Mary River Wetlands and apart from teaming with birdlife it also has the largest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the world. View these prehistoric creatures in their natural environment swimming around the billabong and relaxing on the banks as we cruise past. The birdlife here is fantastic and you will see a huge variety of species such as Jabiru, Ibis, Brolga, Egret, Kite, Sea Eagle, Magpie Geese, and many others.
Our 2.5 hour cruise allows time to really explore the wetlands without any rush. Discover the quieter sections of the billabong as we meander through the various interconnecting channels viewing crocodiles and beautiful birdlife. The wetlands “best locations” are constantly changing throughout the season. Having lunch onboard the vessel allows us the flexibility to select the most suitable location where you can enjoy a delicious lunch surrounded by nature at its very best. Lunch consists of individual prepacked fresh salads with dressings as well as a selection of cold sliced meats and bread. Iced water is provided.
Learn about the wildlife on the Billabong from your knowledgeable guide who will make your cruise both interesting and informative.
