You might think most of Kakadu’s action is on the ground, or out on (or under) the water, but you get a whole new perspective of the floodplains and escarpments from the air, especially in the wet. If you’re a photographer, a helicopter flight offers the ultimate in flexibility.

  • Albatross Helicopters offers a 60-minute flight that includes Jim Jim and Twin Falls for $650 per person.
  • Kakadu Air has a similar flight for the same price but also one-hour, fixed-wing aircraft tours for $250 per person.
  • Scenic Flight Company offers a range of flights including a one-hour fixed-wing aircraft tour for $230.
