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 pilot/owner really bad, you can tell from the moment you walk in he doesn't want to be there... They don't even have an office at the airport! Very old and dodgy looking planes. I recommend the other scenic company in Jabiru 10 times!!!More

Really enjoyed our half hour flight over Kakadu. Andrew our pilot was great. I was disappointed we didn't fly over any waterfalls but it was explained they cannot fly over once the falls have been opened after the wet season. Highly recommend.

We were picked up by Cameron who announced he was our pilot. Excellent commentary by Cameron and he made us feel at ease as it was our first flight in a small plane. Only four passengers & views to die for.

Our friends and I had a wonderful experience on this flight. Patrick was a great pilot and did an excellent job of narrating our flight. It is the only way to really see the Kakadu territory and we would recommend Scenic Flight to all.

We really enjoyed our flight with Lyden. He was very informative and knowledgeable. Took great photos of both Twin Falls and Jim Jim Falls. Only the two of us in the plane. Would recommend the experience.
