People air boating down Mary River National Park

Mary-River-Nationalpark

Das ganze Jahr über zugänglich und etwas mehr als 60 Autominuten von Darwin entfernt, bieten die Süßwasser-Billabongs, Papierrinden- und Monsunwälder dieses reichen Nationalparks hervorragende Möglichkeiten zur Tierbeobachtung, zum Angeln, Buschwandern und Fotografieren.

Besuchen Sie die Aussichtsplattform im Shady Camp, um flussaufwärts zu schauen, und Sie werden bestimmt eines der vielen großen Krokodile entdecken, die diesen Abschnitt des Mary River ihr Zuhause nennen. Bewundern Sie die Vogelwelt von der Aussichtsplattform am Ufer des treffend benannten Bird Billabong oder folgen Sie dem Wanderweg zum Billabong selbst. Besuchen Sie die Aussichtsplattform von Mistake Billabong und beobachten Sie, wie sich das Leben auf dem Wasser vor Ihnen entfaltet. Halten Sie am Couzens Lookout an, um die Umgebung und spektakuläre Sonnenuntergänge zu fotografieren, oder besuchen Sie den Brian Creek Monsoon Forest, um den vielfältigen Monsundschungel zu sehen, der sich stark von den umliegenden Wäldern abhebt.

Der Park bietet viele Möglichkeiten und Orte zum Campen, Picknicken und Wandern, mit Einrichtungen wie Toiletten, Bootsrampen, Informationstafeln und historischen Markierungen. Es fallen Campinggebühren an und die Plätze müssen vor Ihrem Besuch online gebucht werden.
