Experience

Can’t decide between an Airboat Safari or a Champagne Safari Cruise? Why not do them both!

Combine a 45 minute Airboat Safari and a 2 hour Champagne Safari Cruise that will exhibit the best the Top End has to offer in the internationally significant Corroboree Billabong and Mary River Wetlands system. Our knowledgeable local guides will take you on a journey through a natural environment that is teeming with wildlife and showcases Mother Nature at her best.

The winding waterways full of colourful flora make the perfect location for a secluded afternoon tea of complimentary fresh fruit and sparkling wine. Whereas the exhilarating Airboat Safari will add an extra element of excitement to your day, and take you to places no one else can get to.

Itinerary

15 minutes pre-departure  – Arrive at Corroboree Billabong. We suggest you allow some time to stretch your legs and visit the bathroom before boarding as there are no toilet facilities on board (although we do also have a 15 minute interval between tours for any extra bathroom breaks).

Airboat Safari Departure – The Airboat Safari departs from the Wildlands Wetlands Safari pontoon for a 45 minute exclusive adventure on the Corroboree Billabong and Mary River floodplains. Your highly experienced guide will try and get you up close and personal with all manner of wildlife and take you through areas of the floodplains known to be a favourite with the hundreds of bird species that call the area home. 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.

Champagne Safari Cruise Departure – The Champagne Safari Cruise departs from the Wildlands Wetlands Safari pontoon for a 2 hour cruise where our guides will get you up close and personal to an array of wildlife in the area so you have the best opportunity to snap some fantastic photos to take home. Complimentary fresh fruit and sparkling wine is served amongst the lotus flowers.

End of cruise – Champagne Safari Cruise/Airboat Safari will return to the Wildlands Wetlands Safari pontoon where you can return to Darwin or continue on your way to Kakadu National Park.
