Scenic Wetland Flight

Enjoy a scenic flight over the Mary River Floodplain’s where your will see the amazing wetlands from the air.

Seeing the length and breadth of this amazing landscape by air is an experience that you will find hard to describe. Checkered with glorious specks of colour, the rivers weave in and out across the land as you glide across vast escarpment and wetlands.

  • 45 Minute Scenic Flight: This flight takes you out across the Mary River, Shady Camp and surrounding areas. The crocodiles banked up on the shores warming their skin with the day's sun, will give you an eerie sense of what lurks below.

  • 1/2 Day Kakadu Scenic Flight & Cruise: prepare your day to head across to Kakadu National Park and see the expansive escarpments that have been home to our indigenous peoples for centuries. Land at Cooinda and stop at the lodge for lunch, then check out the Warradjan Cultural Centre. You won’t believe how vast the countryside is in this world heritage listed parkland. While you are in Kakadu, you will also enjoy a 1.5hr boat cruise along the Yellow Water Billabong,  a part of the South Alligator River floodplains.

Flying in a small plane is different to a big passenger plane as it is a far more personal and exhilarating experience. Being closer to the ground you get a real Birdseye view on what lies below. Watching buffalo gallop across the wetlands, crocodiles on the waters edge and birds fly off into the horizon, nothing beats the feeling.

Our Cessna 182 and 210, Fixed Wing, is suitable for between 2 and 4 people.
