Overview

Outback Floatplane Adventures is the only way to see the Northern Territory! The Ultimate Tour is a once in a lifetime experience that is designed to allow you to see all that the Northern Territory has to offer in one action packed adventure! Suitable for everyone, this half day tour begins with a courtesy air-conditioned transfer to Darwin Airport, from where you will depart on a 30-minute scenic flight complete with a spectacular Floatplane landing on the waters of our remote lagoon. Sit back and relax as we cruise along the waterway enjoying a hearty breakfast or BBQ Barramundi lunch, encountering various wildlife. Of course we save the best until last, with our exhilarating ride aboard Gale Force, our state of the art airboat. Gliding over the wetlands and through the rainforest channels, get up close and personal with big saltwater crocodiles. This experience ticks all the boxes, it's the perfect way to experience all that the Top End has to offer!
