Mary River Houseboats are situated on the calm waters of Corroboree Billabong, approximately ninety minutes drive southeast from Darwin. Come and experience the beauty of the wetlands and the wilderness of this pristine river system. Whether it be exploring, fishing or sightseeing, do it from the comfort of your own houseboat. Cruise aboard Houseboats with showers, gas barbeques, fridges, double suites, single bunks and more! Party Boats are great for groups of up to ten or twenty and Leisure Boats are suited for groups of six or less. Fishing boats are available too, great for fishing runoffs and the Rockhole. Operating from May to October each year.
