Mary River’s Top 3 To Do & See:

1: Bushwalking

The Mary River region is known for its beautiful walks. Many of the easiest tracks wind through lush forests to sparkling cascades and sandy beaches. The area is also home to many plants and bird species found only in southern Kakadu. Mary River’s more challenging hikes draw you high up into stone country, where breathtaking scenery captures the colour and majesty of Kakadu.

2: Wildlife Spotting

This region of Northern Territory supports a wide diversity of native animals, from insects and reptiles through to marsupials and mammals. Here you can cruise one of the wetlands’ billabongs to see this very busy and beautiful landscape from the water. Spot saltwater crocodiles among paperbark forests, introduced animals such as buffalo, wildlife including monitors and wallabies and the exotic birds that flourish in this rich ecosystem.

3: World-class Fishing

The barramundi is plentiful in the Mary River wetlands. Anglers come from all over the world to fish for the famous barra at places like Shady Camp, Corroboree Billabong and the Adelaide River. Fish up to 1.4m in size are landed each year.
