You haven't truly experienced the vastness and beauty of Kakadu National Park until you've seen it from the air. Our experienced pilots will show you the wonder of this heritage listed area all year round. All passengers get a window seat and live commentary. We are a Territory owned and operated scenic flight company; we live in and love this area. Join us on an air adventure and let us show you the Kakadu you won't see from the ground.

The flight gave us a much better perspective about the park and its surrounding. Something else than only tourring with the car. Price paid is ok and not overrated for what you get to se. I Would not hesitate to rebook it again. Many comments are also given during the flight from the pilot. We did the one hour sunset... More

We decided to splash out on a one hour flight as we had been advised this was the best way to see Kakadu. We also preferred to have a commentary that was live, not a recorded one as offered by another company. Jai, our pilot, gave us a wonderful tour of the southern end of the park as the waterfalls...

We took the one hour scenic flight over Kakadu yesterday. The entire experience was positive; from the inquiry about the flight, the courteous & professional interaction with the staff member, Anthony and the actual flight with our pilot, Patrick. This is one of the best ways to appreciate the vast expanse and the splendour of Kakadu especially when certain areas... More

We wouldn’t normally splash out on something like this, but it’s pretty hard to get a grip on Kakadu without going up to have a look at the lie of the land from above. And we were very pleased we did – you just can’t begin to appreciate the scale and diversity of the place from the ground. We had... More

We did an hour flight with the Scenic Flight Company when we were in Jabiru a few weeks ago and OMG, (no I’m not a 12 year old girl) but wow. We had seen some amazing things in Kakadu National Park but seeing it from the air is a whole other experience! We had some chatter with pilot the and... More

At the time of writing this $250 per head for the 1 hour flight was fabulous. Driving and walking Kakadu does not do it justice. The 1 hour flight was barely enough. The pre-recorded commentary was fair, a bit hard to hear - it would have been nicer with a running commentary from the pilot. We did the sunset flight;... More

We really didn't think that much of Kakadu until we took this flight. Its very hard to appreciate the areas' beauty from ground level, From the air we could see so much more. The beautiful sweeping grasslands, the mountains, the billabongs , birdlife and wildlife, the colors were amazing. The pilot was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend these... More

Seeing Kakadu from the air gives some idea of the size of the park and the diversity of landscapes in the park. We chose The Scenic Flight Company because they have small 4 and 6 seat planes which makes for a more intimate experience. My husband and I are recreational pilots so were not concerned about the turbulence which results... More

We booked this flight as a last minute decision. We needed to fill in time travelling from Kakadu to Katherine. We had booked the half hour scenic flight as we were limited for time.
