Our family loved this flight- we did 1/2 hour flight with Steve (pilot) and enjoyed every minute. Well worth it- it gives you such a better sense of the area as there is so much you miss from the road. Thank you Kakadu Air!

Flying at low level gives you an intimate look at the topography of this extraordinary place, fly along the escarpment and circle the spectacular waterfalls...amazing. Much better perspective from the air. Well worth the investment . Take plenty of photos!
