About the tour Cruise Darwin Harbour

The best way to see Darwin

The best way to see Darwin

Cruise Darwin Harbour, a waterway alive with history, marine habitat and cultural significance. From shipwrecks to dolphins to hippies and crocodiles we explore Darwin from a different perspective. 

About the harbour

About the harbour

Officially a working harbour, the waters of Darwin share the comings and goings of cruise liners, supply ships and HMAS Coonawarra, with a plethora of sea animals and birds nurtured by healthy feeding grounds of sea grasses and mangroves. Surviving bombing raids during WW2 and the ravages of cyclones, Darwin Harbour is rich in both western history and aboriginal culture. We keep a close look out for wildlife and mammals and are often rewarded!

A different experience every time
