Kakadu is spectacular to look at, but immensely more interesting when on a Kakadu Air flight you receive a running commentary about the things you see, and many that you can't. On fixed wing aircraft flights the commentary is researched, recorded and delivered by long term Kakadu experts, via headsets.

I took the 1 hour fixed wing flight (would like to have taken the helicopter but felt it was too expensive). From the air you can get a feeling of the size and hostility of Kakadu NP. We flew over escarpments, plateau's, and several waterfalls, including Twin Falls and Jim Jim. Our pilot usually managed to give passengers on both... More

Thanks for your time and comments, they are greatly appreciated. I am glad that you liked your flight, love the description of Kakadu as "hostile" - so true, but not apparent until airborne. Most aircraft have plastic windows, and yes you can get good photos through them, but for the benefit of your next flight and of others reading this,... More

Great experience and awesome views.chopper way better than plane and can hover over falls and also get closer,very smooth flight.our pilot Bryce was very good with his commentary about Kakadu. Well worth doing. Cost is pricey but u will never forget the views from a helicopter.

Myself and my two teenage boys did the 1 hour flight, the views and scenery were absolutely amazing, such a vast area as far as the eye can see, gorgeous part of the country. Unfortunately we all got very motion sick, which my boys don't normally suffer from. It was such a hot day, the plane was very small and... More

In the wet is such a great time to see this wonderful and powerful land. The plane commentary was both educational and friendly and the flight path included the many wonderous falls and escarpements. Money well invested in this experience

Our pilot took us on a fantastic flight over the waterfalls and rocky escarpment. He flew over Jim Jim and Twin Falls twice so both sides of the plane got a good view and photo opportunities. The flight was quite smooth, but we were warned about a few air pockets we hit. We also had our photo taken before the... More
