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.

We thoroughly recommend doing a boat trip up the gorge either during the day or by night (the sunset cruise). The natural beauty is stunning and the history very interesting. The bird life is abundant and you are bound to catch a glimpse of the usually shy freshwater crocodile.

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.

I used to live in Katherine and I did the gorge cruise 37 years ago, so I thought it might be nice to show my teenage daughters and my husband. We did the 2pm - 2 hour, 2 gorge cruise and I sat at the very front so I could get some nice photos. It was so relaxing and the... More
