Can't complain about anything regarding the tour itself. Simple with beautiful views. I just think it was quite expensive for what it was AUD$94. On a side note, there are currently thousands of flying foxes roosting in the trees near the boat ramp. The smell...More

It's prearranged on the train or when you purchase your tickets for the Ghan. They drop off the guests who aren't going on tours at the Katherine Information Centre and then carry onto the Gorge for the cruise.
