I had a wonderful day trip out to the Corroboree Wetlands. We saw beautiful lotus flowers (we even tried the lotus seeds which were yummy!), lots of interesting birds and a handful of Crocs!! Our guide, Evan, was knowledgable, friendly and provided lots of laughs. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Darwin.

One of the best day tours I have taken part in. If you are into The wildlife it is a MUST! We saw a lot of crocs. Took excellent pictures. Tasted some bush tucker straight from water or trees. And so many other memorable experiences! And most importantly: EVAN, the guide, driver and the boat driver in one was simply a top professional. Facts, jokes, numbers, anectodes etc...The best tour guide I have come across Down Under. Period.

Our guide Evan was great. Funny, engaging, seemed to really like what he does. Fogg Dam is nice as you go in but the viewing platform views nothing interesting. Might be different at different times of year. Window on The Wetlands is dated and boring. Billabong is good. Lunch is on the cheap side. Drive yourself if you can. Save on the cost.

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to take this tour! We had a free day whilst visiting Darwin. It was brilliant. The guide was very well-informed of the region and the wildlife, and the wetlands themselves were inspiring. Birdlife in abundance, which my partner loved, being a bird-watcher, and surrounded continually by the lotus, in flower, and standing tall in the water. We saw the sea eagle multiple times, which I never tired of. One croc. Great lunch provided. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone who loves wildlife, birds, or simply meandering through lotus water gardens.
