Itinerary
Following hotel pickup from Darwin in the morning, board your air-conditioned coach for the 1.5-hour drive southeast to Corroboree Billabong. En route, listen to your guide’s narration and visit Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, which boasts splendid views of the Mary River Wetlands. Touch-screen educational displays provide an introduction to the coastal wetlands ecosystem of this Top End destination before your board your boat. 

Take a seat under the full-length shade canopy of your open-sided vessel, which plies the calm waters of Corroboree Billabong during a 2.5-hours cruise. Your guide points out abundant birdlife such as jabiru, ibis, brolga, jacana, egrets, herons, kites, sea eagles, whistling ducks and magpie geese among the more than 30 different species that inhabit this area.

Keep your camera or your binoculars on hand to capture sightings of any saltwater crocodiles that often sun themselves on the banks or swim stealthily by!

Your boat tour includes a picnic lunch on board. Enjoy prepared salads and sandwiches and replenish your thirst with cold drinking water available throughout the cruise. 

After the wetlands and wildlife tour on Corroboree Billabong, return to your coach for the return trip to Darwin, where your day trip ends in the evening.

It depends what motel you are staying at. Not all Motels are on the pick up list. When you book they give you an approximate pick up time.
