  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.
*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    The Adelaide River Memorial is a must. As an Australian, it was so impactful to see how many lost their lives in the bombings of Darwin. I say bombings because Darwin was bombed over 60 times, spanning nearly 2 years. The Katherine Gorge cruise was fantastic, our guide was a local Aboriginal man who was very knowledgeable. The lunch was a really good buffet.
    We were a bit unlucky as our bus broke down at Adelaide River meaning we didn't get to see Pine Creek as we had to wait for a replacement bus.

    The tour guide, Evan, was so knowledgeable throughout the day. There were so many birds to observe and photograph, as well as coming across a croc on the bank. Evan was then able to give us so much information about the habits and physical structure of this female croc. The boat ride was the major feature of our first holiday in NT.

    An unforgettable experience with a professional company. The pick was from Darwin centre with two guides. The guides are those who tra sport you from town to the location and who take you on the air boat . On the way, you can stop at the bottleshop. People start drinking on the way. When you arrive at the location there is tea coffee and water. Wine is placed in the fridge. The first part is the helicopter. You are weighed. The you walk to the helicopter. It has no doors at the front! But you are strapped in. The 10 minutes is magnificent flying over the flood plains spotting nesting crocs.
    Then straight off to whizz around the swamps in the airboat. That is a powerful machine handled superbly by the guide. His reactions are fast. We saw crocs up close too.
    We visited the Croc sanctuary. Those are big. The we relaxed in the pool after a hearty dinner. The food is excellent t. Accommodation comfortable with private outdoor shower.
    Highly recommend!

    I had a fantastic day with this company. I’ve never been in a small plane like that and I was a little nervous and the pilot made me feel very safe and comfortable. I also enjoyed the river cruise more than I thought. Great commentary and lots of wildlife! This trip made me want to return to Darwin.

    We highly recommend this tour with Kookaburra. It was well organised and very professionally run.
    Our pilot Steve was amazing. He was an excellent pilot, entertaining and really made our trip memorable and a fantastic experience with his detailed local knowledge. 10 out of 10!!

    Woohoo, what a way to cool down on a hot day, with some action and sightseeing. Anton was our captain and his own excitement and love for his job overflowed onto us. Loved hearing Anton speak about the mangroves and local area with some interesting facts I never knew. You will definitely get drenched in such a fun way, so go prepared and have fun doing burn out's on the mud flats too.
