Airboat Safari

The coastal floodplains of northern Australia are home to prolific bird and wildlife (Australia’s answer to the Okavango Delta). Dominated by the climatic extremes of the tropical monsoon, the wetlands and savannah woodlands that fringe the coastal regions between Darwin and Kakadu National Park the floodplains of the Mary River catchment form one of the most significant ecosystems in Australia.

A morning trip out from Bamurru Plains, in an airboat is utterly exhilarating and the only way to truly experience this environment. Your guide will provide you with a hands on demonstration of the many uses of the flora from the wetlands whilst floating amongst a forest of melaleuca trees or looking out for crocodiles slowly swimming amongst the grasses of the floodplain. Glide by airboat through fields of lotus lilies and enchanting paperbark forests. Magpie Geese, Plumed Whistling-Duck, Egrets, Ibis and a host of other birds will take flight as you zip across the floodplains on your airboat, flocks sometimes thousands of birds strong!
