Jan - Dec
This 60 Min Kakadu Helicopter Flight Highlights Tour heads south, passing the Ranger Uranium Mine, across Mt Brockman and along the escarpment to “Lightning Dreaming” hearing about this fascinating Indigenous Dreamtime story. After crossing Deaf Adder Gorge, we take in the beautiful Double Falls, a spectacular introduction to the waterfalls in Kakadu. Continuing south, we fly across the Arnhem Plateau until it drops away revealing the breath taking Jim Jim Falls. Fly on to Twin Falls, with its two distinctive flows and narrow gorge entrance.
During the dryer months the flight will concentrate on the northern end of Kakadu, bordering Arnhem Land. Flying North East into Arnhem Land, we quickly arrive at the “Archway”, a dominant natural structure near the end of an outlier, an island of rock separated from the Arnhem Land Plateau over an unimaginable age, the valley floor between the outlier and the Plateau is known as Mikinj Valley, its floor has seasonal creeks but is dominated by a large year round billabong, resting between escarpment dominated rock country the East Alligator River passes through Mikinj Valley. Its placid dry season waters and perfect white sand defy the reality of massive floods in the wet season. In all this flight demonstrates the food and shelter resources that enabled indigenous existence in this area for tens of thousands of years. Flying over Kakadu is simply stunning and a wonderful something you will not forget.
