For 25 years, during each dry season (from approximately May to the end of August), there has been a plane based at Drysdale River Station offering unforgettable flights. Seat prices reduce with numbers of seats used; if you advance book, we will do our best to get the best possible price by filling the plane. You are not committed to fly if we do not manage to book others, therefore allowing a reduced seat price for all.
Kingfisher Tours and Shoal Air provide our flights and prices for 2017 start from $450 per adult seat; children are at a reduced rate.


Prince Regent & Mitchell Plateau:

This flight takes you past Mt Hann, Deep Gorge and the Rift, then over the magnificent Prince Regent Nature Reserve. Follow the Prince Regent River, fly over unnamed waterfalls, King Cascades, St George Basin, Mt Trafalgar, Prince Frederick Harbour, the Hunter River, Donkins Hill Falls and the spectacular Mitchell Falls. The photographs below will give you a good indication of the spectacular views on offer from the plane.

The vast and beautiful unspoilt coastline of the wilderness nature reserve is always a heart winner. You may even be lucky enough to see crocodiles, dugong and whales. Flight duration is approximately 2 hours.


Charter flights are of course also available to destinations not on standard flight routes, including to and from all towns. Enquire at our office.
