Went camping here for a couple of nights and it was well worth the bumpy 20 minute drive off the highway. Basic campsite, nice and shady (bring water) about a 200mt from the start of the gorge walk. The water was crystal clear and flowing,...More

Wonderful place to visit a must on the way to Darwin or on the way out. Beautiful flowering trees. You won’t regret it.

Wow, locals to the NT and absolutely love to get out and explore! Breath taking views, great gorge hopping and swimming downstream. Plenty of room and lots of walking tracks! Great place for family and friends to explore. Collect your own firewood on the way!!!

Being so accessible, the gorge can get a little busy. The walk in from the car park is generally good, but take water with you (that goes for any walk in the Territory).

The dirt road was pretty good with minimal corrugations. Good place to go bird watching. The gorge is lovely. Didn't go swimming but just went there to have a look and take some photos.

Pleasant trip to the gorge. You can swim in the gorge in designated area. Very pleasant! Dirt road in but suitable for most types of cars. Camping available near gorge suitable for trailers and caravans.

Quieter than the other major gorges and attractions, perhaps due to its size or the fact its only accessible via dirt / 4wd track. Worth a look if you have time. Options for swimming. Campsite has fire pits, tables and a long drop.

Easy walk in to a sandy pool across from a gorge walk. Good for kids and easy access to water. Further down you can follow the gorge along by rock hopping and swimming. Beautiful spot.
