Owner description: 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.
Reviewed 20 May 2017

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.

WOW! This is one of the main reasons we went to Kakadu. Ewen our pilot was very knowledgable & we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Would massively recommend.

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 to Kakadu and back for a 1 day tour. It was definitely worth the extra cost to do this.

The pilot (and our guide) was super lovely, we were the only ones, so it was basically our own private tour of Kakadu. On the way there we saw Jim Jim and twin falls from air - AMAZING. Seeing the falls up close in person is one thing, but from the air is also just so spectacular. We also saw the escarpment, the fires lit as part of the Aboriginal flora management, the flooded rivers, the mine and all the other features of the park.

The day tour also includes the Yellow water billabong cruise which was fabulous. The rest of the itinerary is on their website.

The service provided and experience of the day was just spectacular.

The only note I would make is that because it's a light aircraft, it can get a little bumpy because of the escarpment - depending on the weather. You might like to take a nausea tablet beforehand. I do not usually get motion sickness, but I was feeling a bit woosy!

Oh, also, it's a small aircraft, so you need to be able to climb into it (note for anyone with mobility concerns)

Good Morning,

Wow what an amazing review, the Kakadu and Yellow Water Day Tripper is a perfect way to see Kakadu in a day. The waterfalls are still definitely in flow with the recent rainfall during our Wet Season. Well Done to our pilot, its sounds like you had a great day and personalised tour of Kakadu National Park.

My partner is a little frightened of small aircraft, but agreed to accompany me on the one hour scenic flight in Kakadu Air's 8 seater fixed wing aircraft.
She was so glad she did. The scenery, the waterfalls and the expert commentary by the pilot was awesome. We saw a crocodile from the air, wild brumbys and of course an aerial view of the Crocodile Hotel at Jabiru.
I highly recommend this experience.

Good Morning Michael,

Thank you for the great feedback regarding your scenic flight with Kakadu Air. The One Hour Wilderness & Waterfall Spectacular is a perfect flight path to view Jim Jim Falls, Twin Falls and the escarpment area of Kakadu National Park. We are pleased to hear you and your Wife enjoyed your flight and hope you took lots of photos :)

Fantastic Flight with two friends and our brilliantly handsome pilot. Pricey but totally worth it during the wet season or when the major falls (jim jim and twin) are closed.

You see so much more of Kakadu than you can ever experience on the ground. Great inflight guide that tells you all about the rich history and famous sights that you are flying over. We did a morning flight and it caused some glare on the windows for our photos, so I might recommend more towards noon or a dusk flight might be stunning if its available.
