About
Corroboree Billabong is part of the Mary River Wetlands which are teeming with birds and also have the largest concentration of Saltwater Crocodiles in the world. The Wetlands are just under 90 minutes drive from Darwin ( 105km ) and our cruise on Corroboree Billabong is the closest wetland cruise available from Darwin. We are the original operator on these wetlands and have been cruising here since 2001. We operate a 1 day tour from Darwin which includes hotel pick up, return air-conditioned transport to the cruise plus a 2.5 hour cruise with lunch on the picturesque wetlands. We also offer a variety of 1.0, 1.5 & 2.5 hour scenic cruises for the self drive market. Our cruise rates are extremely competitive and passengers are able to take amazing pictures as we get up very close to a huge variety of birds, crocodiles and other wildlife in their natural environment.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been on Wetlands Day Cruise twice with friends, since moving to the Territory and this time I took two friends on the lunch cruise on our way to our Litchfield break.

Every time I have had the tour guide EVAN, and he is perfect for the role he does. Friendly, knowledgeable, people focused, clearly engaged with his topic areas (Darwin, wildlife, birds etc). He is a typical authentic Australian guy: dad jokes and all.

Every visitor has really loved the cruise. Full of crocs (in their natural state) and endless birds. Really beautiful to take it all in.

It is money well spent, to take in the beauty, relax over an informal lunch, get some great pic's but also to gain a lot of local insights from an informed and motivated guide.

The tour guide, Evan, was so knowledgeable throughout the day. There were so many birds to observe and photograph, as well as coming across a croc on the bank. Evan was then able to give us so much information about the habits and physical structure of this female croc. The boat ride was the major feature of our first holiday in NT.

Hi Philipp, we really appreciate the lovely review and 5 star rating! Evan is a great guide and makes the trips entertaining even when it is not the optimal time of year to spot wildlife! It's great that you still got to see plenty of birds and a croc. Thanks again and we hope to see you again sometime :)

This is a great excursion. Our guide, Evan knows a lot and is very entertaining which makes this the perfect combination of funny and informative. We saw lots of different birds and other wildlife and although not the ideal time of the year we even saw a 3m saltie sunning on the banks. What more could you want!

Hi Daniel! We really appreciate 5 star rating and super lovely review :) Yes unfortunately it wasn't the optimal time of the year but Corroboree Billabong still has plenty to offer, especially combined with Evo's animal spotting skills! We are so glad you had a great day out with us!

Fantastic day seeing the local wildlife up close. Our guide Evan was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Breaking up the trip via a visit to the pub was very welcome in the hot weather. Highly recommended!

From the moment Connie picked us up from our accommodation to the the moment we got back on the bus to return to Darwin after the wetlands cruise, the information conveyed by Connie never faltered. She was entertaining, informative and very friendly.
The cruise on the wetlands was wonderful, relaxing and filled with highlights. Obviously you are at the mercy of the season, the day, the weather as to what you see on the billabong but we luckily saw some absolute highlights and Connie was more than prepared to drive the boat wherever the action was.
From bus driver to boat driver to informative guide to lunch waitress Connie was amazing.
We enjoyed our day very much.

It was a full day with our amazing guide who was very passionate about the wetlands. We saw lots of crocodiles and the wonderful Jabirus. I’d recommend this tour especially as it is a short distance from Darwin and full of sightseeing.
