Corroboree Billabong Road, Marrakai NT 0822


Corroboree Billabong is the closest location to Darwin where you can do a cruise on our spectacular wetlands and you can drive yourself there from Darwin ( 75 - 90 minutes).

To get there travel along the Arnhem Highway to Corroboree Park Tavern, which is located 85km from Darwin and 167km from Jabiru. The turn off from the Arnhem Highway to Corroboree Billabong is on the left just 1 km past Corroboree Park Tavern (heading towards Kakadu). It is 20 km from the Arnhem Highway turnoff to the cruise at Corroboree Billabong and the last 4 km is on a well-maintained gravel road. Wetland Cruises pontoon is located on the bank of the billabong. There is seating, fans and wifi available on the pontoon.

If you do not wish to drive on an unsealed road you can take our shuttle from Corroboree Park Tavern to the cruise and back. Please select the 'cruise with shuttle' option if this is your preference.

The sunset cruise allows you to view the wildlife during their active periods. Birds are trying to catch their final meals for the evening and crocodiles are on the move ready for a night of hunting. Add to this a spectacular sunset over the floodplains as we gently cruise around the Billabong and it`s easy to understand why this is one of our most popular cruises. Guests are provided with amazing photograph opportunities throughou

Outstanding tour
What an amazing sunset cruise with Evan and Viv. Even though Evan must have done this tour hundreds of times he still made it really fun and enjoyable with a wealth of information about all of the animals, birds, crocs and plants that we saw. Learnt so much while gently meandering around the billabong. Highly recommended

Fantastic Service and great bloke Evo
Thanks to Evo, you are a top bloke. We opted for the shuttle bus and was greeted by Evo (great first impressions, terrific smile and wonderful service) who took us to the boat. Our very good skipper, Evo, also took us on a lovely & safe boat trip along the billabong pointing out many points of interest. Sunset was fantastic, I am sure Evo planned the beautiful sunset as he is very capable and able to do anything. After the cruise, we were safely taken back to our accommodation.
Many thanks Evo, it was a real pleasure
