Description
Experience the beauty of Australia's largest National Park, Kakadu, from the sky on a 60 minute scenic flight departing from Jabiru. With a guaranteed window seat, you can take in the majestic views of the World Heritage Listed park and listen to the informative live and recorded commentary. Kakadu has two major climatic seasons, the "Wet" and the "Dry" season. Depending on the time of year you choose to fly, you will take two different flight paths. During the Wet Season (approx December - May), you will depart Jabiru and track south over the township of Jabiru, where you can see the famous Crocodile Hotel in full glory. You will then witness remarkable ecosystems as you fly over savannah woodlands, tidal flats, and majestic wetlands until you reach the dramatic towering sandstone escarpment. Fly across the spectacular Mt Brockman and along the ancient coastline for a bird’s eye view of the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock art site. You will then loop around the Jim Jim and Twin Falls before crossing through the twisting landscape of Deaf Adder Gorge and witnessing the many secluded waterfalls scattered amid monsoonal forests. You will then take in the unique two-tier cascade of Double Falls before heading over tea-tree scrub and mangrove-fringed mudflats as you return to the airport. During the Dry Season (approx June - November), you will pass the Ranger Uranium Mine across to Dinosaur Valley, fly through Upper East Alligator Valley viewing deep fault lines, view the outliers created from erosion, then follow the twists and turns of the stunning East Alligator River. You may even spot salt water crocodiles sunning on the banks of the river. Turning home, you will fly over the mosaic Magela floodplains, with one last view of Jabiru Town to see the famous Crocodile Hotel. **Please note that commencement and termination of Wet and Dry seasons are determined by the weather. If you are visiting in a transitional period E.G November/ May and you have your heart set on a certain flight path, it is best to contact the Kakadu team direct to confirm which flight path we are operating.
