Mary River Wetlands Discoveryfrom Darwin

Nautilus Aviation is proud to combine a spectacular helicopter flight over Top End floodplains with an exhilarating, sensory-filled airboat adventure and safari cruise operated by Wildlands Wetlands Safaris on the majestic Mary River Wetlands!

The world-class Mary River Wetlands, teeming with wildlife – and specifically, the highest concentration of Saltwater Crocodiles in the Southern Hemisphere – is a must-do experience! The highly qualified and passionate guides of Wildlands Safaris will take you on an unrivalled tour of Australia’s largest wetland system.

From the helicopter gain a true appreciation of the size and beauty of the wetlands and from the airboat and safari cruise, close views of crocodiles, colourful flora and a myriad of native wildlife including wallabies, jabirus, sea eagles, kites, kingfishers, brolgas, buffaloes and jacanas.

The Mary River system is an easy, 80-minute drive east of Darwin along the famous Arnhem Highway. But why drive, when you can fly?

The seemingly endless floodplains of the Mary River are a photographer’s paradise. This tour is for the traveller who wants to see it all and doesn’t want to settle for anything less.
