Our 1.5 hour sunrise cruise is ideal for watching the morning activity of the local birdlife. Being our coolest months of the year, the water temperature early in the morning is warmer than the air temperature so most of the crocodiles prefer to be in the water and not out on the bank. This cruise is therefore not the best choice for people wanting to see lots of crocodiles,but a fantastic cruise for people who wish to see lots of our spectacular birds and a beautiful sunrise over the wetlands.
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. Learn about the wildlife on the Billabong from your knowledgeable guide who will make your cruise both interesting and informative.
