Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise commentary and the dinner plus surroundings were absolutely spectacular but I honestly feel that improvements could easily be made to the initial roundup of participants. We had one or two poor girls trying to walk around the group which was spread from pillar to post attempting to ascertain who was there and their preference for dinner.... More

We visited Katherine Gorge as part of a bus tour. I have to say we have never seen anything so beautiful and were in awe! We went via boat up the waterway into the gorges and it was most beautiful. With a swim in Emerald Springs before hand what a perfect day.

If you reach Katherine gorge early morning, try to hike and see the stunning views from above. It can easily get hot, bring enough water/electrolyte drinks, comfy clothes, hiking shoes, sun screen and hat. The trails are well marked and it's a medium, easy path. The cruise was good, only if you had time to take a swim. And yes... More

The Grand Canyon is spectacular but my husband and I found the tour to Katherine Gorge more enjoyable. It's a long bus trip from Darwin, but absolutely worth it. The gorge was breathtakingly beautiful - don,t forget your camera. The views are meant to be kept . We had morning tea at Emerald Springs - a swim at Edith Falls... More

The 2 hour River cruise was most enjoyable. Good commentary and gorgeous scenery. The water level was low at this time of the season so we had a short easy walk to join the boats to continue the journey along the Gorge.

The sunset dinner cruise is spectacular. It combines the two gorge cruise with a three course meal. In our case at the end of the dry season there was a short walk from gorge 1 to gorge 2 but this allowed up to view indigenous rock art. The meal was excellent, especially the crocodile tail. The added and unexpected bonus... More

We did the 3 gorge cruise. It was lovely, but in retrospect we wished we had done the shorter 2 gorge cruise. That would have left us a bit more time for doing other things around Katherine, as we only had the one night there.

The dawn cruise was great, beautiful, just remember to go dressed for a chilly morning. We didn't and froze! Forgot the temps drop over night. I was mesmerized by the thousands of Bats landing on the trees as we arrived. As far as the locals go, this is not part of the tour, they are not popular. But I loved... More

Spent a bit of money on a river cruise, and it was well worth it! Too old for canoeing, so really enjoyed the experience of someone else doing the talking and letting the engine take the strain! The walk in between the gorges was interesting too. Would defo recommend.

On our recent trip to the NT, my husband and I visited Katherine Gorge. Amazing and spectacular are two words that come to mind. Highly recommend the boat ride. A must see for everyone.
