Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Top End / Katherine / Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge
Join a morning cruise to Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge, Nitmiluk National Park's main attraction, to see a pristine natural world teeming with wildlife. This gorge system has great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of the national park. There are many ways for you to experience this lush environment and its world-renowned gorge system. You can walk, swim, canoe, boat, or fly. Walks over the sandstone plateau range from one to five hours and offer unobstructed views of the unspoiled landscape. You can rent or bring your own canoe to the park, and helicopter flights can show you the park's wildlife from above. Keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles, which enter the Katherine River during the wet season.

Katherine Gorge - words & photos really can't do this breathtaking place any justice. The sheer beauty and history of Katherine Gorge is something you need to experience for yourself. Being surrounded by the cascading gorge faces and seeing the Aboriginal rock paintings that have been there for years that we can't even comprehend is just amazing. I would defintley recommend a trip down this stunning place when visiting the NT.
