What months do you operate?

Generally we operate during our cooler Dry Season which is between April and October.

When is the best time to travel?

We often get asked what part of the day or which month is the best time to travel. Naturally this depends on what your schedule is, but our personal suggestion is anytime during the Dry Season, which is between April and October. Our custom-built cruise boats have a canopy to provide shade but the airboat does not have a canopy. We recommend you bring your own hat and sunscreen.

Do you offer transport from Darwin?

No we don’t provide transport and you would need to make your own way out to us.

Do I need a 4WD to get to Corroboree Billabong?

No, the road to Corroboree Billabong is now sealed most of the way with only the last 2km being unsealed road that is very well maintained. This means that all types of vehicles can now travel easily to our base.

Are there toilet facilities at Corroboree Billabong?

Yes there are public toilets located in the car park area.

Is drinking water available on the tours?

Yes we provide a 600ml complimentary bottle of drinking water per person with all of our tours and of course we also carry extra water on board each vessel.

Can we bring infants on the tours?

Infants are more than welcome on our Safari boats however due to the requirement for ear protection on the Airboats the minimum age allowed is 4.
