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.

Our guide Evan was great. Funny, engaging, seemed to really like what he does. Fogg Dam is nice as you go in but the viewing platform views nothing interesting. Might be different at different times of year. Window on The Wetlands is dated and boring. Billabong is good. Lunch is on the cheap side. Drive yourself if you can. Save on the cost.

Evan was an excellent tour guide, entertaining, very informative and focussed. Good low key family or couples outing.

This was the best ever tour I have done - wow, what we saw, covered, incredible and exciting to see the beauty so close to
a capital city. Love the stories told too.

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to take this tour! We had a free day whilst visiting Darwin. It was brilliant. The guide was very well-informed of the region and the wildlife, and the wetlands themselves were inspiring. Birdlife in abundance, which my partner loved, being a bird-watcher, and surrounded continually by the lotus, in flower, and standing tall in the water. We saw the sea eagle multiple times, which I never tired of. One croc. Great lunch provided. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone who loves wildlife, birds, or simply meandering through lotus water gardens.

The wet lands tour was so full of animals from the smallest birds to the largest with teeth. Our guide chris really knew the animals and she spotted them with ease. This tour is a good length and starting at 9am and finishing 530 instead most starting at 6 am and not finishing till 7 pm. A good one for the photographic tour.

Great tour saw plenty of birds that we had not seen at Kakadu. Great alternative to Kakadu if you only have limited time. Our guide, Evan was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and happy to get the boat in as close as possible so we could get even better pictures.
