Yellow Water Nature Cruise, Australia

The large landlocked billabong Yellow Water gained its name from the algal bloom found floating on its surface and has become renowned for the abundant wildlife and birdlife that flock to these floodplains. In fact, a staggering one third of Australia's entire birdlife is found in Kakadu and a cruise on the Cooinda Yellow Water is particularly rewarding at sunrise and sunset as saltwater crocodiles lurk in the muddy banks amongst the rushes, the water lilies open and the birds crowd to the waters edge to feed.

Expert guides will take you through Paperbark forests and swampland and will point out the rare and beautiful wildlife as they steer the canopied boat along the water. At ten kilometres square the majestic Yellow Water peak during the tropical summer (between December and March) and spread as far as Jim Jim Creek and the South Alligator River.
