Some parts of the Northern Territory have to be seen from the air. Taking to the sky is the only way you can appreciate the curves of the rivers and the scale of the national parks.

A few companies operate scenic flights in and around Darwin that present sights like Kakadu National Park and even the beehive-shaped Bungle Bungles in their best light.

Here are a few of the top options.
