Discover the Mary River Wetlands up close on an exhilarating tour by airboat.
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. Enjoy scenes of the Mary River wetlands, an abundance of birdlife and get up close and personal with salt & freshwater crocodiles.
Airboat safari tours depart daily from the Wildman Wilderness Lodge, where you will be escorted by our luxury air-conditioned bus to your departure destination.
Airboats can usually take up to 6 guests, however, on occasion we may reduce numbers if water levels decline. Lower water levels do not affect the scenery, we just like to be safe.
This year we have had a bigger than expected wet season and flooding around the Mary River National Park did occur in many areas. We are waiting for the waterways to settle now and believe that the airboat safari tour should be available by May. We will keep you posted on exact start dates and appreciate your patience.
Airboats are open to guests and external visitors. Bookings can be made online or at the lodge. If you are a visitor to the lodge, we prefer 24hours notice prior to your booking, but if you happen to be passing by and would like a last-minute booking don’t hesitate to call us and we will be happy to accommodate you where possible.
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 Airboat.
Wildman Wilderness Lodge has bar and restaurant facilities, so why not make a day of it and join us for lunch before or after your excursion.
