The Indigenous owned, Yellow Water Cruises takes you on a discovery tour through the world famous Yellow Water Billabong.  

Yellow Water Billabong is at the heart of Kakadu offering a remarkable journey through the region's wetlands, with its rich wildlife, dramatic scenery and ever-changing landscape.

Operating year round, sunrise to sunset, the cruise winds its way through distinct ecosystems of Yellow Water Billabong and tributaries of the South Alligator River.

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.
