    What to Expect
    Make your own way or request a free transfer to arrive at Jabiru Airport 30-35 minutes prior to your departure time.

    You will be met at the Kakadu Air reception by our friendly team ready to check you in for your flight.

    A short safety briefing will be held before taking to the skies on your 60 minute scenic flight. 

    With a guaranteed window seat on all our flights sit back and take in the majesty of Australia's largest National Park whilst absorbing the informative commentary. 

    Kakadu enjoys two major climatic seasons, the "Wet" and the "Dry" season. Commencement and termination of Wet & Dry seasons by month for our flights are determined by the weather.  If you are visiting in a transitional period E.G November/ May and you have your heart set on a certain flight path, it is best to contact the Kakadu team direct to confirm.

    Dry season (approx June - November) Passing the Ranger Uranium Mine across to Dinosaur Valley, fly through Upper East Alligator Valley viewing deep fault lines, view the outliers created from erosion, then follow the twists and turns of the stunning East Alligator River, turning home over the mosaic Magela floodplains, with one last view of Jabiru Town to see the famous Crocodile Hotel

    Wet Season -  Heading south, passing the Ranger Uranium Mine, across Mt Brockman and along the escarpment to “Lightning Dreaming. After crossing Deaf Adder Gorge, we take in the beautiful Double Falls, a spectacular waterfall in Kakadu. Fly across the Arnhem Plateau until it drops away to reveal breathtaking Jim Jim and Twin Falls.

    We did this flight recently and our family of 4 had the plane to ourselves with our wonderful pilot Jamal. Although it is meant to be wet season, the recent lack of rain meant the Jim Jim Falls were not flowing and so Jamal took us for an alternative flight over Arnhem Land,

    Thank you for your 5-star review and comment about your flight with us, it is greatly appreciated :) A scenic flight is definitely a great way to get a snapshot of Kakadu, from the best perspective! We hope you have a lovely trip up here in the NT and hopefully next time you visit we will have a better wet season so you can see the falls from above!

    I don't know how you'd see the splendeur of Kakadu without doing this flight. The waterfalls and grandeur of the park brings to mind the Grand Canyon...different but as inspiring.

    Hi lynnjj53, We are sorry to hear that you suffered from motion sickness during your flight, and hope you felt better shortly after. As like any flight, large or small, there is the possility of turbulance, Unfortunately, turbulance is not something we are able to control as it is caused by unpredictable weather conditions. Our pilots try their best to avoid such conditions and will often climb higher to try and find smooth pockets of air. We are aware that some people are more sensitive to motion sickness and as such we provide sick bags in every seat pocket and also a cold bottle of water for your comfort. This is also mentioned to all passengers during the safety briefing prior to departure. Please contact us if there is anything further we can do for you! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Kakadu! Kakadu Air Team
