Anyone thinking of doing this experience, highly recommended

Absolutely breathtaking, the scenery was beautiful and so peaceful. The guide was so informative and answered any questions. Highly recommend it to anyone. Suit any age. Even saw a couple of crocodiles and you may get lucky and see a turtle... The aboriginal artwork was great.

Great billabong cruise that is well worth doing, everyone had a good day.

Our cruise of the billabong was great, the guide we had was very friendly, easy to talk to and ask questions about anything on our trip. He was also not in a rush, if there was something to see, he made sure everyone could get to. Even moved the boat around so they were able to. I would highly recommend the cruise and when in the area, I would do the sun rise or sunset cruise.

Absolutely stunning scenery and an entertaining tour

Loved this tour. The scenery was so beautiful and 2 hours was a good amount of time to take it all in. The tour guide kept us entertained and informed. Highlights included seeing ancient rock art and a couple of freshwater crocs along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it.
