What people are saying about Air Tours in Darwin
Kakadu Yellow Waters & Katherine Gorge Helicopter Scenic"Flying out at sunrise was so picturesque. The amazing vastness of the NT. Pilot Steve was just lovely. Takeoffs and landings smooth as. Helicopter ride over Katherine Gorge was stunning. Yellow Water river cruise so pretty. Being able to view all of this in such a succinct way and enjoy the landscape from the air was a bucket list moment."..."
Kakadu National Park Scenic Flight"The entire flight was excellent, our pilot Daniel was really helpful and provided good information and photo opportunities. This is a great way to see many parts of Kakadu that would be hard to get to by road. Would highly recommend this scenic flight to anyone."..."
Darwin Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour"The bus travelled all around the Darwin city area and surrounds and provided interesting (if at time somewhat cheesy) commentary. It was a good way to get a feel for the whole area early in our stay here."..."

Mary River Wetlands Helicopter and Airboat Adventure from Darwin"Really enjoyed this. All the tour guides and the chopper pilots were brilliant. My wife and I were in Darwin for work, so didn't have a lot of time to get out and experience the real NT, so this adventure was perfect. Saw heaps of crocs, buffalo, eagles, pigs and thousands of birds. The airboat tour allowed us to get up close and personal with the crocs too!"..."
