Full description

Witness the natural formations in Kakadu on this guided flight over Kakadu National Park. Kakadu enjoys two major climatic seasons, the wet and the dry. The flight takes two different paths depending on the time of the year that you choose to fly. During the wet season, head south, passing the Ranger Uranium Mine, Mt. Brockman, and the escarpment to “Lightning Dreaming". Cross Deaf Adder Gorge and take in the magnificent Double Falls. Fly across the Arnhem Plateau until it reveals the breathtaking Jim Jim and Twin Falls.

For tours during the dry season, start by passing the Ranger Uranium Mine across to Dinosaur Valley. Go through Upper East Alligator Valley, and follow the twists and turns of the stunning river. Then, fly over the Magela floodplains to see the famous Crocodile Hotel.
