SCENIC FLIGHTS OVER KAKADU
& WEST ARNHEM LAND

Scenic Flights over Kakadu & West Arnhem Land - offer more contrast and greater variations to land forms, over a larger area, created over a longer time period, subsequently displaying more ecological and visual changes including colour, than any other 1/2 hour or 1 hour flight any-where else in Australia.

Today we are flying DRY SEASON routes…
KAKADU IS SIMPLY SPECTACULAR - TO SEE KAKADU IS TO FLY KAKADU!

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

Description: Compared to a 1/2 hour flight, the additional 30 minutes are an extension to the cruise distance of the aircraft, meaning that a one hour flight, fly's much more than double the distance of a 1/2 hour flight. For you that means the pilot has more discretion in altering the flight to see variable attractions, for instance the location of the sun [shadow] and that we spend more time out over the East Alligator River beyond the rock country, here the winding tidal river cuts a swathe through bordering wet and dry floodplains, the vegetation providing amazing contrasts in colour. Don't be surprised to see salt water crocodiles sunning on the banks of the river. This flight is a stunning demonstration of the contrasts in land masses in Kakadu.

Description: 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.

Flying North East into Arnhem Land, we quickly arrive at the “Archway” a dominant natural structure near the end of an outlier, an island of rock separated from the Arnhem Land Plateau over an unimaginable age, the valley floor between the outlier and the Plateau is known as Mikinj Valley, its floor has seasonal creeks but is dominated by a large year round billabong, resting between escarpment dominated rock country the East Alligator River passes through Mikinj Valley.

Its placid dry season waters and perfect white sand defy the reality of massive floods in the wet season. In all this flight demonstrates the food and shelter resources that enabled indigenous existence in this area for tens of thousands of years.
