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. 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 10 km of the road to the cruise is a well maintained unsealed road.
Late afternoon is generally the best time of day to see animals and our 2.0 hour sunset cruise allows you to view the wildlife during a very active period. Birds are trying to catch their final meals before flying to roost for the evening and crocodiles are on the move ready for a night of hunting. Add to this a spectacular sunset over the floodplains and it`s easy to understand why this is one of our most popular cruises.
