  • Extremely disappointed. Give this cruise and area a miss. I expected a beautiful protected landscape but saw a degraded floodplain. Feral buffalo and horses are destroying riverbanks and trees...

  • We took the 2 hrs sunset cruise, which it is a bit pricey. Views are good but kids felt boring after 1 hour. Sunset is wonderful on the river
  • Awesome trip. We went on the 9am cruise and it was fantastic. Boat not too busy (like the dawn trips), plenty of wildlife and neither too cold nor too hot. Heaps of crocodiles and birds and we had a guide with a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend
