This tour begins at the docking area of your cruise ship 1 hour after actually docking.
This tour is limited to 6 people.
Once the team is set we journey to Howard Springs approximately 30 minutes south of Darwin. Here you will get amongst a vibrant example of monsoonal forest which fringes a crystal clear natural spring full fish, turtles and all sorts of top end critters. Enjoy an interpretive walk through the forest after which we will take the time to enjoy some home made snacks, tea and coffee.
From here it is on to Casuarina Coastal Reserve. Nothing says Top End more than a wander along the soft white sandy beaches with the northern breeze in your hair. Casuarina is also the most visited reserve in the Top End and yet does not appear on visitor maps. It is almost exclusive to locals. There is a diversity of habitats here including mangroves, riparian and rare casuarina woodland. You will be guided through these culminating with a beach stroll along casuarina beach.
Throughout your experience your guide will also be introducing you to bush foods, medicines and materials that can be found in these habitats.
All in all a comprehensive introduction to the natural diversity of the Top End.
Following casuarina it is back to the cruise terminal and bon voyage !
