Wetlands Airboat Safari

Discover the Mary River Wetlands up close on an exhilarating tour by airboat.

Departing directly from the Home Billabong at Wildman Wilderness Lodge this tour will take you out over the Mary River floodplains where you will encounter abundant bird life, salt water crocodiles and perhaps even water buffaloes. Hovering above the reeds and lilies, stopping occasionally to take it all in, there is no better way to truly sense the vast and diverse beauty of this unique landscape.

Airboat tours depart daily from Wildman Wilderness Lodge and are available to both guests and visitors. Bookings can be made online or by calling the Lodge directly. 

90-minute tours:

  • 8.30am
  • 4.30pm 

Tours are dependent on weather conditions and there is a minimum of 2 people per tour required for a tour to take place. The maximum capacity is 7 people.


If you have a booking, please present to the Wildman Wilderness Lodge reception desk. Your tour guide will be waiting to transport you to the Home Billabong via air-conditioned bus (5 minutes away). The Lodge is leisurely 2 hours drive from Darwin/ 2.5hrs from Jabiru and accessible all year round by 2WD or 4WD. 

Wildman Wilderness Lodge has bar and restaurant facilities, so why not make it a day event and join us for lunch before or after your excursion.
