A deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River draws thousands of visitors to the Jawoyn-owned Nitmiluk National Park each year. Distinctive dissected sandstone country features above the gorge, lush rainforest gullies inhabit giant cracks in the gorge walls, and broad valleys meander through both the high and the low country. Enjoy a boat tour, helicopter flight, various walks, camping and canoeing. Leliyn (Edith Falls) is also a great attraction within the Park.

It's lovely to travel up this gorge in one of the guided tour boats, hearing the narration about how the gorge was formed and what happens in the wet season, when the whole place floods.

The lookout walk is well made but steep. 40 minutes or less return trip will reward you with a spectacular view of the gorge and river. If its hot the earlier the better. Therefore I would recommend you start early and... More
