Superb natural beauty somewhat spoiled by the addition of an unnecessary and ugly concrete path. We went on the dinner cruise -food delicious, staff friendly. Beautiful sunset.

Two visits. Sunset visit up to specatular lookout. Daytime visit for cruise up the overwhelming gorge. Both absolutely worthwhile. The sunset spectacle included a birds-eye view of the nightly flight of thousands of bats which live in the grounds and fly off up-stream in the gorge like a giant swarm of bees. Apart from a couple of strays which flew... More

An excellent location. We camped at a non powered site $20 per person. Facilities were great and clean, atmosphere was good (some live music the night we were there though we didn't go over). We got up and went for a morning kayak along the first part of the gorge, $38 per person ($50 deposit). Equipment was good. No guide,... More

Beautiful boat tours on the gorge. Would of loved to of been able to spend more days there and hire a canoe as that looked awesome. We stayed in the camping ground there they have put in an awesome swimming pool. Great place.

The Katherine Gorge is well worth the visit for the sheer beauty. Unfortunately its very commercialised with very unfriendly staff. The short walk to the lookout offers some stunning views. We did the 2 Gorge tour with this out 4th visit to the area, and the first time taking the boat tour. The gorges is stunning, although my personal opinion... More

In the middle of dry country, the Katherine River winds its way through steep gorges of red rock, with native plants dispersed on the banks. Fresh water crocs inhabit the area and can be seen on a river cruise. Lots of walking tacks ranging in length and level of difficulty - highly recommended

Tremendous place, peaceful and quiet, good walking tracks to follow. Caught a glimpse of a crocodile making its way slowly upstream and then slowly disappear under the water. Great birdlife in the gorge and also on the Katherine River itself

At around a 600km round trip we knew we were in for a big day. Whilst we had several stop overs the man attraction was Katherine Gorge and this did not... More

We did enjoy the trip and the information provided by the tour operator. The opertunitie to go for a swim was good but only... More
