Went on a truly magical flight where we saw beautiful parts of Kakadu that you couldn’t even imagine on the ground. Our pilot, Tom, made sure everyone was comfortable and ensured both sides of the plane could take in the best views possible by circling around waterfalls and mountains in both directions so no one missed out. Tom was incredibly informative, narrating the flight as we went along pointing out historic icons and Dreamtime stories associated with them, animals and waterfalls!

Ryan our pilot was amazing to take us over Kakadu. The scenic flight is the perfect way to see the Jim Jim waterfalls during the wet season ( also the only way :)) The flying over the billabongs is stunning! Well worth.

Given it was the rainy season and access to many areas was restricted, an aerial view of the park enabled us to experience the full beauty of the waterfalls and appreciate the expanse and geography of this amazing area.
The pilots Tom and Mitch were very friendly and their informative commentary added positively to the experience.
We felt totally safe and the scenic flight was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Recommended.

Hi David and Stanley
Thank you for the great review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the flight and it was lovely to meet you both. I'll be sure to pass your kind words on to Tom and Mitch (who we think are pretty great, too!).We hope that we see you again - maybe in dry season? Happy travels.

Visiting Kakadu at the end of the wet season means that not all the waterfalls are available from the ground. Visiting in the dry season, there's not much water. Seeing Kakadu from the air was magic! A big thumbs up to Jarrod, our pilot from Scenic Flight. For an hour, from a very smooth takeoff to a very smooth landing, we were treated to a great informative commentary, viewing of JimJim and Twin Falls from all angles and the plateau.
Definitely a must experience on your Kakadu trip!

Hi Margo. Thank you for choosing The Scenic Flight Company, we're glad that you enjoyed the flight and that you got to see what you wanted to. Andrew is a great pilot and loves what he does. Maybe next time you visit us he can take you to the North to see the floodplains? We would love it if you are able to share some of those great photos to our Facebook page. Happy travels!
