Mary River

Fai una crociera o raggiungi una riserva di pesca e ammira le rigogliose zone umide di Mary River, un microcosmo fiorente di animali selvatici, uccelli e pesci del Top End.

Explore the lush Mary River wetlands, a thriving microcosm of Top End wildlife, birds and fish. Located about an hour east of Darwin it is a good place to stop on your way to Kakadu National Park or for a day trip from the city.

Abundant birdlife

Visit Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve in the dry season to see some of the 250 species of birds that flock to the concentrated water supply. Jabiru, jacana, pygmy geese, brolga and ibis are regularly spotted feeding among pink Lotus lilies. Take cover and observe colourful migratory birds from a bird hide at a tranquil billabong.

Wetlands explained

Browse the fantastic interactive displays of Top End birds and animals at the Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre. The centre is perched high above the floodplains with panoramic views of the wetlands below.
