About
Seeing Kakadu from a helicopter is one of the best ways to experience its many magical attractions in just one day! Instead of spending 6 hours travelling by road, spend only 3 hours flying by helicopter, taking in many spectacular landscapes along the way – with various stops for photo opportunities. Departing from Darwin, enjoy a scenic flight to Kakadu flying over the Adelaide River and its floodplains plus the Mary River National Park. Marvel at Kakadu’s famous wetlands and gorges – including Ubirr. Next stop is Jabiru. Here, enjoy a stop at Cooinda for lunch and a Yellow Water Cruise operated by Kakadu Tourism. The flight home includes views of the pristine wetlands of the Mary River and Corroboree Billabong.

AMAZING! Best experience in Darwin and worth every dollar!
If you do one thing in Darwin, make sure it’s the Kakadu Heli tour! Our guide/pilot Shaun was professional, adaptable, informative and an all round great guy! The scenery is spectacular and out of the 500 odd photos we took it’s really hard to pick a favourite. We saw soooo much more than we would have if we had gone by coach or car! I was a little nervous at the start but omg when you are up there it is breath taking. We have been in Darwin for over a week and seen and done all there is - this is by far the best experience we have had - if it’s not on your list of things to see and do - It should be!!!!
