The calm waters of the Mary River are best enjoyed on a fishing trip or nature cruise. The Mary River area, between Darwin and Kakadu on the Arnhem Highway, is an angler's paradise, literally jumping with barramundi and other tropical estuarine species. Wildlife spotting cruises are another ideal way to explore the area. Diverse fauna such as crocodiles, buffalo, wild horses and migratory birds are frequently seen. Travellers come to view magpie geese, brolgas, white-bellied sea eagles, red-tailed black cockatoos, rufous owls and more. Accommodation options in the area range from airconditioned cabins to caravan parks and campsites. Corroboree Park Tavern and the Bark Hut Inn are found along the Arnhem Highway, with Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge located through Mary River National Park. Mary River House Boats offer a unique accommodation option available for hire. Four-wheel drive enthusiasts will enjoy the floodplains, paperbark forests and monsoon rainforests found on the Hardies and Wildman four-wheel drive tracks.
