Outback floatplanes tour company Darwin

Outback Floatplane Adventures is no ordinary tour operator. We do things differently. And because we love what we do, you’ll love what we do!

Our pioneering spirit, professionalism, sense of fun and absolute focus on making your outback experience the best ever sets us apart from other tour companies in Darwin. Your memories are as important to us as they are to you.

We’ve also got a long history of involvement and achievement in Australian tourism.

Our owner, Troy Thomas, is widely acknowledged as one of the industry’s most innovative and passionate supporters. His contribution to developing tourism has earned him - and his companies - numerous awards and accolades.

But accolades from our guests matter the most. We do this for you.

Troy’s first venture using seaplanes as a unique and exciting way to showcase Australia was Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures, launched in 2006. He then started Swan River Seaplanes in Perth offering bespoke day tours to popular destinations around Western Australia.

If you choose to explore the Northern Territory with us, you’ll experience why Troy has been so moved by this extraordinary landscape. It invokes a deep emotional response. A response we understand. And we know it will touch your heart too. And leave you wanting more.
