Tour description provided by Viator

See the wildlife and waterways of the Top End – the northernmost section of the Northern Territory – on a cruise of the Mary River wetlands from Darwin. Gliding through lagoons filled with water lilies and water birds, you’ll travel in a high-powered safari boat from Corroboree Billabong, Australia’s prime location for spotting saltwater crocodiles in their natural environment.

Relax on an air-conditioned coach trip from Darwin to Corroboree Billabong, an hour’s drive from Darwin, passing the outback town of Humpty Doo. Keep a lookout for kangaroos and wallabies hopping through the bush and take in the outback vistas of the Adelaide River’s dry floodplain.Arriving at Corroboree Billabong, take a 1.5-hour cruise of the Mary River wetlands, the best place in Australia to spot saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat.Bring your camera to snap the wildlife and mangroves, as the high-powered boat navigates the waterways and takes you up close to birds, crocodiles, lotus flowers and water lilies. Your expert guide will provide insightful commentary and point out the myriad bird species, including sea eagles, jabiru storks, herons, kites, kingfishers and brolgas.
