Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    About one third of Australia's bird species are represented in Kakadu National Park, with at least 60 species found in the wetlands. Whistling Ducks and Magpie Geese are the most abundant. Eagles can be seen hovering searching for prey, and at times you will see distinctive Jabirus and may even get to see Brolgas dancing. There are plenty of crocodiles in their natural habitat, and buffalo on the floodplains.
    The Experience
    Yellow Water Cruises has exclusive use of Yellow Water Billabong. It operates year round and provides up to six cruises a day of 90 or 120 minute duration. The sunrise and sunset cruise are very popular and advance bookings are recommended. Many people undertake more than one cruise during their stay to see the changes in the wildlife at different times of the day. The cruises offer a year-round spectacle, with the different seasons providing a rich and ever-changing vista.
    Your Guide
    All guides are experienced and are ticketed with the Kakadu Knowledge and are often supported by our Indigenous guides who are taught the secrets of Kakadu by tribal elders. They can give fascinating insights into how the Bininj people use the flora and fauna to support their way of life and the remarkable life cycle of the region’s most famous wildlife, such as the crocodiles and eagles.
    A Yellow Water Cruise is the best way to experience the wetlands of Kakadu and it will be an experience remembered for a lifetime.

    Saw lots of crocodiles, birds, some buffalo and lots of lotus lillies. Commentary was non stop for 2 hours, about the history of the area and its people. The breakfast after our sunrise cruise was fantastic.
