DESCRIPTION

Within minutes of Darwin a pristine wetlands teaming with wildlife can be found. Discover the secrets of the Top End on a 1 day tour to the Corroboree Billabong with visits to the Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve, the magical ‘Window of the Wetlands’ and a relaxing afternoon Mary River Wetlands cruise. Travellers will set out from Darwin at 9am to Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve and see what was once a rice growing project in the 1950’s now transformed into a haven for local and migratory birds. You will also have the opportunity to capture some amazing photos of the Sacred Lotus and Native Lilies here. The interactive displays at the ‘Window of the Wetlands’ Visitor Centre provide insight into the ecological process and seasonal changes of the wetlands and a view of the Adelaide River floodplains that should not be missed on the way to the Corroboree Billabong.

One you’ve arrived at Corroboree Billabong it’s time for a picturesque 2.5 hour scenic cruise but keeps the eyes peeled for the birds and saltwater crocodiles that cruise beside the vessel or bask in the sun on the banks of the billabong. The Mary River Wetlands is home to the largest concentration of crocodiles in the world and this is your chance to see them up close. During the cruise enjoy a picnic lunch and a private moment to embrace the tranquility of your surrounds. As the cruise comes to an end your tour guide will deliver you back to Darwin accommodation around 5pm. This is a day out for the whole family with tours available daily between May and October.
