After crossing the South Alligator River travel along the Kakadu Highway to Warradjan Cultural Centre to view informative displays before cruising down the Mary River to experience the beauty of the Mary River Wetlands.

Enjoy a buffet lunch at Cooinda, before exploring the World Heritage Area of Ubirr to see Ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries. Witness the history and culture of the Aboriginal people come alive through the impressive paintings that have stood the test of time.

This was a long day, but very interesting and with great views. The tour had changed from our booking from Yellow River to Mary River Wetlands. Our guide was excellent. The visit to the aboriginal paintings were great and cultural was very educational but the highlight of the tour was the Mary River wetlands cruise. There was heaps of crocodiles and the water lilies were beautiful and too sit among them and sip on champagne and eat fruit was so peaceful. The bird life was wonderful. Overall the day was inspiring.

This was a wonderful Experience. Our Brazilian Guide, Fabiana was wonderful, with great local knowledge and a great manner. We saw great Aboriginal art, Museums and a wonderful cruise on the Mary River, with another great guide, who knew where all the crocodiles lived. I was surprised by the lack of bird life, which I believe is more evident on the Yellow River Cruise.
