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

We stayed in this beautiful national Park in July for 3 nights in our own car. The national park is really stunning and I would defenetly recommend a boat tour to the third gorge. We also ate once on the campground in the pool area. Beautiful and cold pool. The chef was a German young guy. Very friendly and knowledge.... More

We did a cruise through two of the gorges and the scenery was spectacular. The guide on the boat pointed out many features in the landscape and different flora and fauna which definitely added to the experience. Will definitely come back for a longer visit to this national park.

This is a HUGE national park with many walking trails to explore. Unless you are experienced Please take advice from the Parks Rangers before you set off. Amazing variety of landscapes, wildlife and scenery. Some wild like (spiders and snakes and crocs) can be dangerous, so be aware. Loads of water needed - as in camel back + a couple... More
