Experience

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

Let our highly experienced guides take you where no one else can go on a exhilarating Safari Combo.

Combine a 45 minute Airboat Safari and a 1.5 hour Safari Cruise in our purpose built boats where you will learn about this amazing area from our local guides and get up close and personal with some very impressive wildlife. The seemingly endless floodplains of the Mary River are a photographers paradise.

This tour is for the traveller who wants to see it all and doesn’t want to settle for anything less.

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 or 30 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.

Safari Cruise Departure –  The Safari Cruise departs from the Wildlands Wetlands Safari pontoon for a 1.5 hour cruise on Corroboree Billabong. On this cruise, 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.

End of cruise – 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.

Note – There is no particular order to whether you go on the airboat first or the cruise first.
