It was absolutely beautiful, so serene and proud to think it's part of Australia. Guide was excellent and funny, but don't put any part of your body outside the boat Croc's are in there

On our recent journey on The Ghan, we visited Katherine Gorge and its beauty is stunning. As we cruised along, the rock features were amazing. Can thoroughly recommend anyone to visit this wonderful location.

Wow. We did the dinner cruise. Worth every cent. Good food and the Gorge at sunset is truly beautiful. We want to come back and spend a day here.

We did the Katherine Gorge tour the scenery was breath taking and the commentary was very informative. You definitely need your camera. There is a bit of a walk between the two gorges. We were a little disappointed with the buffet. Facilities, food etc at departure point.

Awe inspiring! We did the 3 gorge cruise and our guide was knowledgeable and certainly helped us appreciate a little of the cultural significance of the area to the Jawoyn tribe. Its simply a breathtaking experience.

Katherine gorge is a vast area, lots of walking. There is a boat trip up to the gorge, we missed this as we got the times wrong. There are clean toilets along the walks available. Also a gift shop is there as well.

On our first visit, we did the Barowei loop walk, an excellent, well-maintained and well signposted walk along the gorge and through the surrounding bush. There is a bit of climbing up to the lookout but there are well built steps to help for most of the way,with a bit of clambering at the end - nothing too challenging. The... More

Katherine George was created when the earth split and water filled the void and a new river was created. The isolation and the natural beauty of this place is spectacular in the extreme. The sedimentary layers that had been deposited from a mountain range that once was higher than the Andes but is now little more than a bump started... More
