Day 3 : Sunrise Wildlife Billabong Cruise, to Darwin
The Mary River Wetlands which have the highest concentration of Saltwater Crocodiles in the world, it’s also home to Corroboree Billabong. We start the day early with a wildlife cruise as we watch the wetlands light up as the sun rises over the billabong. The cooler temperatures in the morning during the dry season means we don’t always see Crocodiles, but it is an opportune time to see the vast array of Top End bird species in this amazing wetland ecosystems. The Wetland View Top Centre offers further insights to life in the wetlands, the local aboriginal culture as well as amazing 270-degree views of the Adelaide River and Floodplain from the viewing deck. At the Centre the local Traditional owners will share with us the local creation story of the ‘Turtle Dreaming’. After lunch we start the journey back to Darwin but we make one last stop to visit Fogg Dam Conservation area to learn some of the history and enjoy the views of the wildlife and wetlands from the viewing platforms.
