Enjoyed a 2 hour trip in 2 Gorges, im blown away just how amazing the gorge is, the guide taking us was very informative and even gave us a good laugh. I would recommend going on a cruise as it is really worth it. I will be back in the dry season for sure

Went on a boat trip up the 2 gorges and went for a swim. It is absolutely stunning. It is no wonder this is a special place

Guidebooks say NITMILUK NATIONAL PARK is one of the 3 TOP END National Parks. I see no reason to argue. It doesn’t have the wide range of attractions KAKADU and LITCHFIELD offer, but its best venue, the FABULOUS KATHERINE (NITMILUK) GORGE tops anything they have. Which is just as well – lack of time and vehicle meant I couldn’t trek... More

The Katherine Gorge boat trip is one of the NT highlights and should not be missed. If walking is not your strengths, select the two gorge trip (a short walk between gorge one and two). The scenery is spectacular and presents many opportunities for photographers.(watch out for the dark/light contrasts !). The boat trips are well organised and the comentry... More

Loved the cruise between the two gorges, but safety was an issue on the second gorge, as there was no handrails to pull yourself up from the boat to the land, this late in the dry season. There was no one to help people up from the boat either. It was a huge step up, probably better to have been... More

We spent 5 days travelling through this wonderful area! From the ancient rock paintings of Ubirr to the many waterfalls, swimming holes and the historical outback pub at Grove Hill and the spectacular Katerine Gorge! An amazing experience!

We did Edith Falls and Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park recently. The park has a great visitors centre, lots of hikes for all levels of fitness and experience plus lots and lots of wildlife which is great and will approach you. We did a cruise since we had the time to spare on our second jaunt into the area... More
