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...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...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...More

We had a great pilot Linton who showed us so much of Kakadu across the escarpment, the East Alligator River, billabongs, Ubirr etc Love it! Only downside was the fixed wing strut that obscured our view a little for taking photos out of each side.
