My husband and I visited Kakadu over Easter and had decided to take a scenic flight over the falls. After looking at the different options available we settled on Scenic Flight and I am so glad we did. We went for a flight in a four-seater plane, only my husband, the pilot and I, whereas we saw other companies take... More

Great flight this afternoon at 3.30. Our pilot was very informative about all the sights & history of Kakadu. The views are amazing. Their local competitor was rude and dismissive on the phone so I booked with The Scenic Flight company. All the best guys and thanks!

It worth it so much to do this. Whoever the company is you are taking for. If you find the price too expensive, stop drinking beers for 2 weeks, eat pastas, with no sauce on top and spend the money in that flight. You will not have the opportunity to fly over a space like that often. No words to... More

Just completed our 2 hour flight over Kakadu and Arnhem Land with Charlie and Kakadu Air. A great experience for the start of this Wet Season to the Top End. Charlie was very competent, friendly and informative, making sure we got the best possible views of the many features we were flying over. The waterfalls are in full spate now,... More

This company was brilliant the first time so didn’t... More

1 hour scenic flight is a great flight to do in the wet season as the falls are spectacular. You will need to be flexible with flight times to fit in with the weather but it is worth the wait. Pilot Charlie was great and very informative.

Highly recommended!! Pilots name was Charlie who we also can't speak highly enough of. Very informative, polite, and made the whole fantastic experience an absolute pleasure. The 4 seater plane including Charlie makes the trip intimate and a delight to be part of. Has to be experienced.

It was well worth it. We flew past a storm which I thought was going to ruin our flight but we missed it thank goodness. Views of the waterfalls and landscapes were spectacular. We got some great photos and were unable to see Jim Jim and Twin Falls any other way as early rains had flooded the roads and they... More
