  • Overview & Itinerary


    Cruise the Adelaide River and witness crocodiles in their natural habitat jumping with the Jumping Crocodiles and Wetlands Tour. See these predators from a close range as they spring up from the water to grab their food.

    The tour will also take you to the wetlands – the Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre and Fogg Dam Nature Reserve, where you will see unique flora and fauna and admire the natural beauty of the area.


    To begin your Jumping Crocodiles and Wetlands Tour, you will be picked up from your hotel in Darwin and you will travel 60 kms to reach the Adelaide River, home to over 1600 crocodiles and the location of the famous jumping crocodiles. Travel along the Stuart Highway to Adelaide River and listen to the commentary about the outskirts of Darwin along the way.

    Adelaide River Cruise:
    Once you reach Adelaide River, cruise the river to see the crocodiles from a close range. Catch a glimpse of these dangerous predators as the guide will entice them to leap out of the water.

    Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre:
    Next, you will head to the Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, one of the highest points on the Adelaide River floodplain. Here you will find one of the most exotic wetland birds, the dancing brolga gliding in the sky. Also enjoy spectacular views over the Marrakai Plains from the Visitor Centre.

    Fogg Dam Nature Reserve:
    The Fogg Dam Nature Reserve is one of the few wetland systems accessible to visitors all year round. Admire the beauty of the natural systems and spot unique flora and fauna.

    Tour concludes at approximately 6.30pm, at which time hotel drop offs will commence.
