A fascinating 30 minute scenic flight (60 minutes return) west of Darwin is the Corroboree Billabong, a wildlife lovers paradise in the heart of the famous Mary River wetlands.
From the comfort of a custom-built safari boat, witness the flora and fauna of Australia’s largest wetland system, home to an abundance of wild crocodiles and a variety of native birdlife and various land mammals including wallabies, buffalo, jabiru, sea eagles, kites, kingfishers, brolgas and jacanas.
Next, we take the excitement up a notch with an exhilarating, sensory-filled Airboat Adventure! Having a flat bottom and no underwater rudder or propulsion system to snag on things below, the airboat glides freely across seemingly endless floodplains and into additional areas inaccessible by conventional craft. This is definitely on the list of must-do, iconic Top End experiences!
Your Wetlands Discovery concludes with a light picnic lunch.
Please note: minimum age for the airboat tour is 4 years.
Camera, sun-smart clothing including hat, sunglasses and sunscreen (SPF 50+ recommended).
