Hi Beth, Wayne really does love his job, and we are so glad it shows. You hit the nail on the head about the driving - why drive when you can fly! This is exactly what the Darwin to Kakadu Tour was created for. Thank-you...More

The hour flight gave me a great understanding of the variety of landscapes within the Kakadu area. The vivid green wetlands were a highlight. The small plane was a great experience and the commentary through the headphones was helpful although sometimes a little hard to...More

This is a great way to see Kakadu if you only have one day. It is much better than a four hour bus trip out from Darwin and back again at the end of the day. Everything about this trip was very well done. Booking...More

Having done numerous scenic helicopter flights, this didn't quite measure up. The flight, just after sunrise when there shouldn't be much turbulence, was quite rough but we always felt safe. The light plane also seemed to fly quite high so you didn't see individual landmarks...More

We had a half hour flight from Jabiru and the price and times would depend on the time of the year and length of flight. Contact the company direct as they were a very friendly crew.
