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. These wetland habitats provide an ecologically sustainable environment and are a paradise for birds, fish, crocodiles and other wildlife. Watch huge crocodiles laying along the banks and basking in the sun, seeing these prehistoric creatures in their natural environment is a great experience.
Apart from all of the crocodiles, the birdlife here is also fantastic. You get to see an amazing variety of bird species within a very short period of time with regular sightings of Jabiru, Ibis, Brolga, Jacana, Egrets, Herons, Kites, Sea Eagles, Shell Ducks, Swamp Hens, Stilts, Spoonbills, Terns, Whistling Ducks, Darters, Cormorants, Fly Catchers, Kingfishers, Rainbow Bee-eaters, Magpie Geese and many others.
Corroboree Billabong is just over 75 minutes drive from Darwin (105km) and you drive past the wetlands if you are on your way to or from Kakadu National Park. Alternatively, it can also be easily visited as a day tour from Darwin.
We are the original cruise operator here and have been operating cruises on the wetlands since 2001.Our guides possess extensive knowledge about the region and the wildlife that inhabit it. Over time, the wildlife has come accustomed to seeing our cruise boat which is great as it allows us to get right next to the animals for amazing pictures. The cruises are very informative, interesting and allow you to get up close and personal to everything that you are seeing.
