Territory Wildlife Park
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: drw-001
Your tour begins with a scenic drive to the Territory Wildlife Park, one of the major attractions in the Darwin area. The park is nestled in some 400 hectares of natural bushland and has over 4 miles of walking trails that pass through abundant woodlands, lush wetlands and tropical forest. For the convenience of the Park's visitors, carriages pulled by small trucks are available which navigate around the Park, giving informative commentary along the way. As the Park is quite extensive, this may be the most fitting way to travel from one stop to another.
While here, you'll have a chance to see a vast array of native wildlife, such as kangaroos, wallabies, buffalo, tropical birds, dingoes, crocodiles and Banteng cattle. As photo opportunities will abound, be sure to bring your camera. Attractions at the Park also include the unique underwater walk-through aquarium where you are immersed in the midst of gliding whip rays and other colorful fish and marine life. Another fascinating exhibit is the Nocturnal House which gives an extraordinary glimpse into the lives of many species of nocturnal animals that are rarely seen in the wild. There is also a special enclosure where a scheduled performance is held that allows you to observe some of the Park's birds of prey in full flight.
Although guides will greet your coach, provide maps and be available to offer suggestions and assistance, your time here is unstructured and it is at the individual's discretion which experiences they wish to partake in. It is suggested that you first cover those exhibits you most want to see in the time allotted.
At the conclusion of your visit, your coach will return you to the ship in Darwin.
Please note: It is important that guests meet at the designated pick-up point at the time advised by the driver. Comfortable walking shoes, sun hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are recommended. The order of sights visited may vary and the itinerary may be reversed. This tour does not operate with a separate guide, but rather with a driver/guide.
