Overview
More
Corroboree Billabong is part of the Mary River Wetlands which are teaming 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.

It's a good road, but DO take the bus. That way you can meet other travelers and exchange experiences.
