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.

The flight, commentary and views are all fantastic. To see the vastness and landscape differences is quite amazing. To see where aboriginal people have occupied the land for thousands of years, and see where white explorers went -- formidable.

Due to being short on time, combined with the fact it was the wet season, we weren't keen to spend 6+ hours on a bus to do a 1 day tour of Kakadu. Whilst it's a bit more expensive, we chose to fly from Darwin...More

Planning on doing a 1hr flight (fixed wing)(next week) in late April over kakadu. Is there a better time of day to do this? Was thinking midday due to possibly clearer weather but unsure of glare re photos. Anyone have any suggestions ?

I am planning to go to Kakadu in March 2017 to fly over the waterfalls in the wet season. Do you get a better view from fixed wing aircraft or helicopter? Gerard

Hi Gerard Definitely the chopper. While more expensive it allows you to get low and hover over the falls - just brilliant.
