Yellow Water Billabong
Yellow Water Billabong is a small body of water off of the South Alligator River in Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is a UNESCO World Heritage site just outside of Darwin, in the North of Australia. If you are into birdwatching or crocodiles or both, Yellow Water Billabong should be high on your list of places to visit. The best and easiest way to accomplish this is booking a tour with Yellow Water Cruises. We choose the sunrise tour and it was loaded with wildlife.
Getting There: Kakadu National Park
A biodiverse park loaded with wildlife and Aboriginal history, it lies a quick two-hour drive to the east of Darwin in Australias Northern Territory. Whether it be by rental car or tour, chances are you will be exploring Kakadu in a vehicle of some sort. If you choose to rent, think 4×4 as the park has lots of road restrictions. If you only plan on visiting sites directly off either of the main roads (Hwy 36 or 21), you can get away with only having two-wheel drive.
Yellow Water Cruise
There are typically six cruises per day, but that number can change depending on the time of year. The first one at 6:45 am and the last one at 4:30 pm are the most popular. Booking through their website is a breeze, and I highly recommend you do it before arriving to secure the cruise you want. Prices start at $72 AUD, but as with all things they are subject to change, so double check the website before going.
