Wetland Cruise Tour
Window on the Wetlands information center is the first destination your learned guide will bring you prior to boarding your vessel at Mary River Wetlands. Here on the waters of the Corroboree Billabong Herons, Kingfishers, and White Bellied Sea Eagles fly above a dizzying supply of Saltwater Crocodiles. Then, as you relax, observing nature's cycle from land, lunch will be served. Travellers with a love of birds, crocodiles, and wetlands adore this tour.
Upon acquiring insight into the area at Window on the Wetlands, you'll stroll through Fogg Dam Nature Reserve to get your bearings and understand its importance to the Aboriginal peoples. Thereafter, you'll be escorted to Mary River Wetlands.
Here, you'll board a custom vessel, enabling a more intimate, but safe view of a range of animals, from Salt Crocodiles to gentle ducks. Soon after, a tasty lunch will be served from land, enabling you to discuss the sights with your fellow travellers. This is the ideal tour for comfortably seeing the wild habitat in near Darwin.
Once again, Shore excursions directions to pickup point can be confusing! The tour bus took us to the edge of the outback about 70 miles from Darwin. Our first stop was a Fogg dam, a place too dangerous to get out of the van( due to snakes) but filled with remarkable sites. Next we stopped for a shot time at THE Windows on the Wetlands Information Center, small but well done. Next stop was Carobarrea Tavern, Good place for a beer and a bite to eat. The guide on this trip was remarkable. He provide a running, fascinating commentary from pickup to drop off. During the cruise we spotted 4 crocs and unique birds including the Jesus bird The flowers and trees were beautiful. Lunch was served( great salad) .

The wetland cruise was very enjoyable. We saw a few alligators and lovely birds as we cruised around the billabong.
