A deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River draws thousands of visitors to the Jawoyn-owned Nitmiluk National Park each year. Distinctive dissected sandstone country features above the gorge, lush rainforest gullies inhabit giant cracks in the gorge walls, and broad valleys meander through both the high and the low country. Enjoy a boat tour, helicopter flight, various walks, camping and canoeing. Leliyn (Edith Falls) is also a great attraction within the Park.

The 3 Gorges boat cruise over 4 hours is not for a faint hearted. A lot of walking between the gorges but really worth the effort. The swin at the 3rd gorge was the highlight of the trip. Would recommend.

We went on the three gorge four hour boat trip. The catering didn't match that at Kakdu (Cooinda). Generally pretty good, but not cheap. A bit crowded for my taste. The Lily pond swim at the end was a highlight. A Freshwater crocodile or two wowed the visitors.

This was well presented as a rock-painting viewing cruise in The Katherine Gorge. The river was down and canoeing hadn't begun its season.The cruise had a guide giving all the information that one would need.

We did the two gorge tour which means that you go so far in one boat and then get out and walk to the next as the way is blocked by a rock barrage. Our tour guide was 'Jamie' a traditional land owner and he was just a treat. He made the entire journey so much fun and at the... More

Nikmilut tour Today we had booked ourselves on a tour of Nikmilut (Katherine Gorge) Culture and Country. With a 7.15am departure time, we set out alarms and made for an early light. As we were promised an early brunch en route, we had a slight snack before heading down to the boat ramp. Just-in-case - we also packed some fruit... More

Katherine Gorge is a pretty place but WOW! you will pay for everything you do. No freebies at all. To see the place ya pretty much have to buy some sort of a tour. Makes me appreciate my country's National Park system

We went on a boat trip in the gorge as an off-train excursion when we were on The Ghan. What a treat! This is a stunning place, and very beautiful, with entertaining and informative guides. I wish we had had time to see more. Highly recommended.

Fantastic red cliffs, the walks around the gorge are varied and will appeal to all levels of fitness. Really worth seeing. Our guides were friendly and informative.

We did the 2 gorge dinner cruise, what an experience. This is up in the very top bracket of global things to see and do. The grandeur of the Gorges at sunset is a spiritual experience, it's also great fun and the guides are friendly and professional
