Corroboree Billabong

Darwin accommodation

Corroboree Billabong is a natural reserve that is located just a short drive from Darwin and is one of the region’s most popular fishing spots. One of the highlights of visiting the billabong is taking a wetlands cruise.

There are one hour and three hour cruises that guide you through lush wetlands with abundant birdlife and crocodiles on their own territory. In fact, this area is part of the Mary River Wetlands, which is home to the world’s biggest concentration of crocodiles. It is the perfect place to see some of the top end’s quintessential birdlife such as jabiru and brolga as well as ibis, jacana, egrets, sea eagles, herons and kites. Guides are highly experienced and knowledgeable about the wildlife and flora of the area and the history of the billabong. You can visit the park on a half day trip from Darwin – it is highly recommended as it is often compared to the wetlands of Kakadu National Park, minus the crowds.


If you are partial to a spot of angling, then you may be interested in joining a fishing tour of the billabong. This is an excellent place to drop a line and reel in a barra or two. The barramundi is one of the most popular Aussie fish and makes for sensational barbecuing once back on the shores of the billabong. To get to the billabong you travel out of Darwin along the Arnhem Highway and stop at the Corroboree Tavern from where you can take a shuttle bus to the site.
