Outback Floatplane Adventures is the only way to see the Northern Territory! Designed by Matt Wright, National Geographic's 'Outback Wrangler', the Ultimate Outback Tour is a once in a lifetime experience that is designed to allow you to see all that the Northern Territory has to offer in one action packed adventure! AIRBOATS - HELICOPTERS - FLOATPLANES - SCENIC CRUISES. Suitable for everyone, this half day tour begins with a courtesy air-conditioned coach transfer to Darwin Airport, from where you will depart on a 30-minute scenic flight complete with a spectacular Floatplane landing on the waters of our remote lagoon. Sit back and relax as we cruise along the waterway enjoying a hearty breakfast or BBQ Barramundi lunch, encountering various wildlife along the way. Next, we whisk you away on a helicopter flight from the roof of our vessel, flying over the local wetlands and on to our off-road buggy. Touchdown and take off on a journey through the ancient rainforest canopies as we head down to the airboat. Of course we save the best until last, with our exhilarating ride aboard Gale Force, our state of the art airboat. Gliding over the wetlands and through the rainforest channels, getting up close and personal with big saltwater crocodiles. This experience ticks all the boxes, and being a half day long, action packed adventure, it's the perfect way to experience all that the Top End has to offer in the most exciting way possible!

The best experience of the Top End!! Thoroughly recommend this experience for all visiting Darwin who are looking for the natural beauty, along with an adrenaline pumping helicopter flight and down time with the local wildlife.
