Scenic Flights

Scenic flights offer the opportunity to access the vast wilderness areas and remote natural attractions of Australia's North West. Many are hundreds of kilometres apart, so rather than spending six hours on a bumpy track, why not take to the air in a light plane or helicopter.

Local operators have unique knowledge of the area, which means you can access places that few people have ever laid foot on. Imagine soaring high in a helicopter over the plunging gorges and thundering waterfalls of the Mitchell Plateau, or viewing the beehive domes of the Bungle Bungle Range in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park.

Catch a float plane to experience the thrill of landing on the water after viewing the magnificent thousand islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago. Try helifishing and be whisked away to remote locations to fish your own private river system. Or jump onboard a mail run and visit a string of remote communities.

Some luxury coastal camps are accessible only by lightcraft.  There are no mobiles or computers, so you can disappear for a few days for the ultimate in relaxation, or take an extended air safari and spend a magical six days covering the very best of the region with your own private plane and pilot.
