About Kakadu Air Scenic Flights
Kakadu is spectacular to look at, but immensely more interesting when on a Kakadu Air flight you receive a running commentary about the things you see, and many that you can't. On fixed wing aircraft flights the commentary is researched, recorded and delivered by long term Kakadu experts, via headsets.

We had a half hour flight from Jabiru and the price and times would depend on the time of the year and length of flight. Contact the company direct as they were a very friendly crew.
