Located only a short 10-15 minute drive from Jabiru turning right at the Arnhem Hwy intersection.

We did an extended flight over Kakadu and views into Arnhemland.
Although not cheap but considering the running costs of a Helicopter per hour,
it is, the ultimate experience in viewing and certainly better than from an airplane.

Photo opportunities abound.
Spend the money and encounter one of the best sites from the air you will ever encounter.
Highly recommended.

My wife and I recently had a flight over Kakadu with Simon. Though it is not inexpensive it was well worth it. We went on the last flight of the day and saw Kakadu in all its glory. Very helpful advice. Very attentive service. Very safe. I couldn't recommend it more highly. Do it. It's worth it

I did the 1hr Helicopter flight during the wet season. At this time of year its the only way to see Jim Jim and Twin Falls. I had the option of having the doors off - definitely recommended!! Ive also been lucky enough to do a fixed wing flight, however nothing compares to the sites and sounds of the helicopter buzzing around. Best experience of my time in Kakadu!
