THE EXPERIENCE

30 MINUTE DARWIN SCENIC FLIGHT

This flight provides a great snapshot of Darwin’s diverse natural beauty while providing insight into the major events, both past and present, that have shaped it into the laid back, but modern and internationally connected city, that we know today.   

Departing from Charles Darwin National Park on the Darwin city fringe, highlights include: 

  • Sweeping views of the Darwin city centre 
  • Stokes Hill Wharf and International Cruise Ship Terminal 
  • Darwin’s popular Waterfront Precinct including wave park and Darwin Convention Centre 
  • Darwin Esplanade and Bicentennial Park
  • Cullen Bay Marina
  • Mindil Beach – home to the famous Mindil Beach Markets
  • East Point Reserve and historical fortifications
  • Beautiful coastal vistas along Nightcliff and Casuarina Beach up to Lee Point 
  • Hope Inlet with pockets of Monsoon forest and extensive Mangroves – crocodiles! 
  • East Arm Wharf
  • Flight returns to our landing site in Charles Darwin National Park

At key locations during the flight we cast our minds back to how things would have appeared during the Japanese air raids of February 1942 and the devastating effects of Cyclone Tracy which made landfall in the early hours of Christmas Day 1974. 

Cyclone Tracy took 71 lives, destroyed more than 70 percent of Darwin’s buildings and left more than 50% of the then 48,000 inhabitants homeless. 

THE NAUTILUS DIFFERENCE

Compared to fixed wing aircraft, our helicopters have enhanced maneuverability and are fitted with oversized viewing windows creating a premium scenic flight experience.  Your pilot can easily adjust speed, altitude and direction of travel in response to wildlife sightings or other points of interest while ensuring passengers on both sides of the aircraft receive equal chance to capture that perfect photo opportunity.
