Full description
Get up close with Australia's top predator and local wildlife on this adventurous day tour through the Northern Territory. Hop on a floatplane and admire stunning low-level aerial views over Darwin and its surroundings. Get lost in the blue of the sky and the sea. Watch as the landscape changes dramatically from city to wetland rainforest. Listen to expert commentary from your skilled pilot as you fly and be prepared to experience a spectacular water landing.

After landing on the waters of Sweets Lagoon, switch to a fun airboat ride. Sit back, enjoy a delicious BBQ meal, and explore deep into the monsoonal rainforest. Get a closer look at big saltwater crocodiles and other unique wildlife of the outback. Cool off and take a dip in Australia’s only crocodile safe pool to come face-to-face with wild saltwater crocodiles.

Extend your Northern Territory experiences with stops at Tolmer Falls and Wangi Falls where you can swim in crystal clear, refreshing pools while taking views of the magnificent waterfalls above. Enjoy afternoon tea in the beautiful park outside the township of Batchelor before returning to Darwin.
