Adelaide River Tours
Adelaide River Tours is a family-owned and operated one-day wildlife tour on the Adelaide river, first stop is a short visit to windows of the wetlands before boarding their 12 seater boat where you cruise upstream taking in all the wildlife on offer, enjoy morning tea on board and an Outback gourmet barbecue lunch at our private riverside camp, then it's off to Goat Island for a visit where you can purchase a cold beverage and meet the owner of this unique spot.
Then back to the boat to enjoy the trip back down the river whilst spotting the famous Northern Territory crocs, beautiful birdlife, kangaroo and more.
Adelaide River Tours offers Darwin City and Palmerston Hotel pick up in their airconditioned bus. This is a truly unique Northern Territory experience not to be missed. Bookings are essential as they are a small group, private charters also available.
Their comfortable Adelaide River Tours air-conditioned minibus will pick you up from your accommodation in Darwin or Palmerston (additional pickup locations available on request).
It’s approximately a 50-minute drive to the mooring where you will board their shaded boat to explore the far reaches of the mighty, tidal Adelaide River.
You’ll enjoy morning tea on board while you sit back and take in the changing vista of the river. Your tour guide has a vast knowledge of the region and is a wealth of information.
An outback gourmet lunch is served at our private riverside camp which is a short walk from the boat. They are able to cater for special dietary requirements, please let them know when booking.
You then return to the boat and cruise to our next stop which is Goat Island, the only privately owned Island in the Northern Territory. Here you can also purchase an alcoholic beverage or soft drink. Check out the fabulous wood carvings and furniture, crafted by one of the Goat Island residents.
Then it’s back to the boat for the cruise home, spotting more wildlife along the way. You will be dropped off at your accommodation, at approximately 5 pm.
