Kakadu experiences two major seasons: the “Wet” and the “Dry.” The 60-minute flight follows different paths depending on the season you choose to fly.

Wet Season –  (approx December – May) :

Departing from Jabiru, head south over the township and enjoy a stunning aerial view of the famous Crocodile Hotel. Marvel at the diverse ecosystems below, including savannah woodlands, tidal flats, and majestic wetlands, before the dramatic sandstone escarpment comes into view. This plateau’s edge has stood watch over Kakadu’s lowlands for over 140 million years. Soar over the spectacular Mt Brockman and follow the ancient coastline for a bird’s eye view of the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) rock art site.

Once lapped by ancient seas, the edge of the escarpment rushes past, surrounded by deep, narrow gorges and prehistoric sea cliffs. Look ahead to spot a smoke-like mist; in its full wet-season splendor, the prominent Jim Jim and Twin Falls come into view. Water thunders over the escarpment, surging into Jim Jim Creek below. After circling the falls from both sides of the aircraft, you take one last glimpse of the majestic, thundering falls.

Cross through the twisting landscape of Death Adder Gorge and witness the many
secluded waterfalls scattered amid monsoonal forests before taking in the
unique two-tier cascade of Double Falls. Traverse the ancient foreshore as you
