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.

We did the Three Gorges Tour as part of our off train experience with the Ghan. The river was at a level that we were able to go through all three gorges in the one boat and completed it in about 20 minutes. It was a fantastic experience to see the water at such a level - about 4 metres... More

I live on the Gorge Road and my property backs on to the Katherine river which is connected to the Gorge... We go to the Gorge all the time for a picnic & swim and even take a cruise of one of their many boats. With luscious natural bushland surrounded by rocks and animals in their habitat makes a lazy...

We did a 2 gorge boat trip and a 3 gorge helicopter flight. Boat trip was very comfortable. Cool and our guide was very easy to listen too. Helicopter flight was our first and so totally awesome and our pilot was very interesting and made the flight so much more enjoyable.

I'm not a 'nature' person but you can't help but be amazed by the gorge. The sheer size, the serenity, the beautiful scenery is breathtaking. If you can get to a Rockpool for a swim, do it!! Beautiful and a welcome relief from the heat.

There are multiple gorges here and what trips and gorges you can be taken down depends on the time of year and the water level. You may have to change boats if the water level is low to get into the next gorge - in our case twice going down and twice going up so you need some walking shoes... More

Went to the gorge and the cultural centre. Saw demonstrations of bag, bowl, spear making. Saw how to get a bush wax. Listened to the didgeridoo. An amazing morning delivered with such a great sense of humour. An off train excursion from the Ghan

We'd visited the Gorge in the wet season so it was 2m higher than it normally was. The water was beautiful, Gorge full of life and even saw some of the rarer red fruit bats. At the end of the boat tour we were brought to some waterfalls to swim under. This was probably one of the most amazing places... More

This is a very popular attraction in the NT. It is considered a major landmark, has a fancy hotel and it is a Mecca for everybody traveling the Steward Highway. Even the Ghan stops for a few hours so that the passengers can be bused there. It has helicopters and plains flying over, tourist boats of any size and denomination,... More
