Took a t rip to the Katherine gorge to spend time with people explaining basket weaving, rock art, bark painting, weapons including manufacture and use, walked around garden to identify trees used to make woomeras, spears etc. run by an indigenous family who brought it to life. Recommended

“Camping Grounds”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

What you see and what you get are two different things......to book online and by just viewing the advertised material can lead to a big disappointment.....the caravan sites are the worst I have ever seen,dusty roads in the camp area,when you go out for a day trip,your camp site is taken by someone else.....especially if you are camping in a Motorhome and this is your only transport.

Ablution blocks are well maintained as well as the swimmingpool area. The Visitor Centre and restaurant on the premises are outstanding.The cruises on the river is interesting but the visit to the Cutta-Cutta Caves was a disappointment....

“Wonderful nature....bats take to wing”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

At sunset watch the thousands of bats leave their tree homes. Diving and drinking from river before circling in a crazy natural vortex before flying off to feed. Experience this on the pontoon just 50 metres up from where the boat cruises depart. Arrive just before sunset for a good half hour of natures wonder.

“Awesome and inspiring”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We spent one night and two days at Nitmiluk - Katherine Gorge, home of the Jayown people. The Nitmiluk Dreaming river cruise to gorges 1 and 2 was great , with interesting commentary from our guide. The next morning we walked the 3.7 klm Baruwei Trail to lookout, views of the gorge and lands in the distance were well worth the effort.
I acknowledge the Traditional Owners past and present and thank them for sharing their country and stories
