SCENIC FLIGHTS OVER KAKADU
& WEST ARNHEM LAND

Today we are flying DRY SEASON routes…
Kakadu is awesome in all seasons, the wet season when all is green, fresh and adorned by mighty waterfalls, and the dry with stunning variations of eco variations.

It’s as if the seasons were competing against each other for the grand prize of which season is grandest.

We fly to completely different areas in the dry, the views are distinctly different, and the land forms we fly are much more varied, the views changing in every minute flown. We see amazing erosion features, the massive Arnhem Land Plateau, sliced by age and erosion into isolated outliers, Rivers are carved into the 1650million year old kambolgie sandstone plateau, faults and fissures host flora as different as spinifex and tropical rain forest. The sandstone spoils being the source of white sands on the river floors. The fresh water rivers lie still, but nearby the winding tidal rivers rise and fall at 100 kilometres inland, forced by massive 8 metre tides at the Arafura coast. Kakadu’s wildlife survives in permanent billabongs, and seasonal floodplains.

These are the views of Kakadu that can only be fully appreciated from an aircraft.

There a range of flight options to suit all budgets and Kakadu Air also offer TOURS FROM DARWIN. Let the adventure begin! Fixed Wing Scenic flights can be booked online or Ph 1-800-089-113.

Flight departs from Cooinda. There is an awesome variation in land forms, quite different to those close to Jabiru. Cooinda is located very near the Sth Alligator River and adjacent to the world acclaimed Yellow Water billabong, what you don’t see from the ground is Yellow Water feeding into the tidal Sth Alligator River, and the amazing colour variations of many more floodplains as the river winds seaward. The flight also sees stunning permanent deep water billabongs and a good portion of the main Arnhem Land Wall, Nourlangie (Burengy) outlier, Mt Brockman and the Ranger Mine and Jabiru Town.

The ultimate experience is to fly the Jabiru ½ hr flight and the Cooinda 1 hr flight, they fly entirely different but complimentary routes.
