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 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.

The pilot was disinterested. The plane was very old ,rusty and uncomfortable.We couldn't hear the commentary and on the right hand side of the plane we couldn't see the main attractions including the waterfalls....very disappointing. Book with Kakadu air. They have a waiting room and very modern planes. I don't know how this company ever got a good rating on... More

We chose the 2 hour flight to try and see more than just the usual flight down to Jim Jim and Twin Falls, as many of the roads to these attractions were still closed. Scenic was the only company that I saw that offered flights of this duration. Cost was $400 pp, almost as much as the return Sydney-Darwin flight... More

My partner and I had a great flight in the Cessna 172. It was a last minute booking in the wet season. We were welcomed by Patrick, our pilot on arrival at the airport and given a good briefing on flight safety and where we were headed to. The scenery was spectacular and gave a real sense of the magnitude... More

We took a small plane ..that fit three passengers so yes a small plane! But it meant we got to see everything from all angles. The scenery is stunning and the beauty of it all did bring a tear to my eye .. I love Australia! Being just me and the family made it very personal, and looking over the... More
