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.

We made up our minds to take the one-hour flight at short notice, after being a bit hesitant about the cost, but it was more than worth it. The most fantastic way to see Kakadu sights after a few days trekking around by boat, 4WD and on foot. Really rounded out our visit in a memorable way. Michael, our pilot,... More

Kakadu is such an amazing but vast landscape that the only way to appreciate this properly is by air. Having had an amazing time in Kakadu visiting the iconic sites of Jim Jim Falls, Yellow Waters, Ubirr and an awesome fishing trip with Kakadu Fishing Tours (lots of Barrumundi) it was only a last minute decision to do the scenic...

Very disappointed when we arrived in Jabiru the day prior to our 1 hr booked flight to find they were on holidays. The conflicting stories the staff gave, and the unrecieved message they claim to have left, did nothing to appease our disappointment.

If you save to do anything once in your life, then this is it. The flight is a bit scarey at first but once you are comfortable, the rest is pure awesomeness! Honestly the best spent money and bang for buck in Arnhemland! (legally)

Last week visited Darwin and decided to do a tour of Kakadu. No regrets at all. The best way to see Kakadu was by air and it was an amazing view and the only way to see Kakadu and have an understanding how the country looks like. Also the pilot was very friendly and we couldn't have a better day.... More

Hi guys, thanks for your review. We're so glad you visited Kakadu. It really is a must see destination. You're absolutely correct when you say that the only way to see Kakadu is from the air. It's so difficult to truly appreciate the vastness and beauty of this area if you only see it from the ground. Mike loved being... More

Worth every cent! A breathtaking view of Kakadu with jaw dropping views of crocodiles and other wildlife. Anthony, our pilot, was very friendly and did an excellent job narrating the flight. My two teenage sons loved it, the highlight of our trip. Tony – Perth WA
