Overview
Discover the highlights of the Top End on a 5-hour tour that goes deep into the Northern Territory by floatplane and boat. Your outback experience begins with the floatplane journey to Sweets Lagoon in the Finniss River floodplains. After a water landing, have a barbecue lunch and take an airboat cruise into the rain forest to look for Australian wildlife like crocodiles before returning to Darwin by air.
What to Expect

Choose from three departure times for your Top End tour, and begin with pickup from centrally located hotels in Darwin. 

Soak in the views from the floatplane as you fly southwest over Bynoe Harbour to the remote Finniss River floodplains. Experience a gentle water landing on Sweets Lagoon, then take a leisurely cruise by custom-built airboat into the monsoonal rain forest where you might see saltwater crocodiles, wild boar, buffalo, and a variety of birds. You can even go fishing for barramundi or take a dip in the only crocodile-safe pool in Australia.

Hear about the region's wildlife and history from your guide before returning by plane to Darwin. This action-packed tour offers a comprehensive experience of a Northern Territory wilderness that is inaccessible by road.
