Departure – The Airboat Safari departs from the Wildlands Wetlands Safari pontoon for a 45 minute adventure on the Corroboree Billabong and Mary River floodplains.

During the cruise, your guide will take you out onto a privately owned area of the Mary River wetland system – the only way to access this part of the world is by airboat and Wildlands are the only airboat company with access to this area.
