Corroboree Billabong Wetlands Cruise

I stopped at the Corroboree Tavern on the Arnhem Highway to book a boat ride on the wetlands. The booking process was a little random without my phone signal so I just went out to the billabong and booked in for the sunset cruise which turned out fantastic. The boat driver was from Surrey in England and took us all around the billabong to see birds and crocodiles.
