Our 1 hour cruises are perfect for people short on time or travelling on a budget. They are also great for families travelling with younger children who may not have the attention span for a longer cruise.They are long enough to see a reasonable variety of wildlife and give you a taste of these amazing wetlands. Be prepared though that you will probably feel the need to come back again one day.
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.
The access road to Corroboree Billabong adjoins the Arnhem highway 1km East of Corroboree Tavern. The last 4 km of the road to the cruise is a well maintained unsealed road. For people who do not wish to drive on an unsealed road, we offer a shuttle service from Corroboree Tavern that meets all cruises. The shuttle departs 30 minutes prior to the cruise times and costs an additional $5 per person.
