Join a morning cruise to Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge, Nitmiluk National Park's main attraction, to see a pristine natural world teeming with wildlife. This gorge system has great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of the national park. There are many ways for you to experience this lush environment and its world-renowned gorge system. You can walk, swim, canoe, boat, or fly. Walks over the sandstone plateau range from one to five hours and offer unobstructed views of the unspoiled landscape. You can rent or bring your own canoe to the park, and helicopter flights can show you the park's wildlife from above. Keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles, which enter the Katherine River during the wet season.

  • The gorge is spectacular and deserves a 5 star rating, the boat trip was crowded and due to seating arrangements, couples couldn’t sit with each other, unless you paced it out between gorges or got to the dock 1 hr early so it gets a 3 star. Guide was good. Great Cafe at the end!
  • What a lovely place to visit. Guide was very knowledgeable. Before we got on the boat we were given a bag with a drink, banana bread,biscuit and a mandarin. It was a surprise to get the bag of food, but thank you. The 3 gorges we went down were all different. I would recommend this to everyone. A great morning out.
