Nitmiluk Tours has just launched a new extended scenic helicopter tour over Nitmiluk Gorge and surrounding areas to cater for the increasing popularity of scenic flights.

“Helicopter touring is fast becoming one of the most popular methods of seeing this vast region”, said Ms. Corinne Lewis, Marketing Manager Nitmiluk Tours. “From the air you can get a real appreciation of the vastness and majesty of the landscape, combined with the thrill of the helicopter experience. We have seen the popularity of helicopter touring grow this season and as a result have developed a new itinerary that offers more landscapes, more experiences and more fun more at a value for money price”.

The new 13 Plus Flight offers guests the best of the region. It combines a spectacular flight over the 13 gorges that make up the Nitmiluk Gorge system and includes an extended tour of Seventeen Mile Valley to view the Northern Rockhole, Biddlecombe Cascades, Crystal Falls, and Seventeen Mile waterfalls. Upon return, guests can spot the wild Buffalo that roam along Seventeen Mile Creek as the tour follows its way back towards the Katherine River.

The 13 Gorge Plus tour is a 30 minute action packed experience, priced at $299 per person.

Nitmiluk Scenic Tours depart from the helipad located just 3 minutes’ drive from the Visitors Centre within the spectacular Nitmiluk National Park. This offers the best value for money as there is no ferry time wasted getting to and from amazing sights. All tour offers magnificent views from the air with ‘photo’ and ‘video’ opportunities of Nitmiluk Gorge, the Arnhem Land escarpment, waterfalls and local wildlife. Nitmiluk Tours is the only company permitted to land inside the National Park, offering a unique selection of breathtaking landing options at waterfalls, swimming holes and ancient rock art sites that are only accessible by helicopter.
