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.

Really good visitors centre with a lovely deck and lattes. Nitmuluk tours run a really efficient and professional collection of boat tours. The company is indigenous owned, guides are passionate about the area and their website makes it really easy to research and book. I recommend an early tour. We did the 9am; by the time the 11am crowd was... More

The inspiring nature of the rocky escarpments of the Katherine Gorges suggests that the Rainbow Serpent focussed very carefully on his creation. The late winter sunrise provided an ever-changing kieldoscope of brightness, shadows and rock images, all set the scene for or an enchanting cruise by these 'white fella' visitors. This is more overpowering that the Yangtze Gorges" one waterborne... More

Did the 4 hour 9am trip, it was beautiful to sit on the boat and watch the scenery.. Unfortunately we didn't not see a lot of wild life but did see 2 freshwater crocks and some birds.. It might have been because it is dry season. If I did this again I'm not sure if I wouldn't do the 2... More

You first arrive at the modern visitors information and booking centre which has the usual souveniers,a cafe with nice food and coffee, great staff and an elevated deck at... More

We hired a double kayak for the full day. We left around 830am and paddle up the first gorge. Amazing scenery so peaceful yet so many things to look at. Then pull your kayak up on the sandy area and take your paddle for the short walk to the 2nd gorge. Grab another kayak and away you go. We took... More

We only give ourselves an hour here. Really could have spent a day on the Gorge. Just lovely. Well set up for tourists. We just did the short trail walk to the look out. Easy walk.
