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.

I have been lucky enough over the years to experience Nitmiluk (The Katherine Gorge) through all of the tours offered and after visiting again on Sunday, it is quite obvious that the Jawoyn and all staff have a truly well oiled tourism product and natural attraction on their hands!

We had been hoping for close up view of ancient rock art, but heavy rain made this impossible. The trip up the first gorge was fantastic however and we could almost see the water rising as we watched. This was a dramatic introduction to how quickly the situation can change.

This is one beautiful Gorge. The gorge can only be accessed in the dry season (April through to about August would be the best time, Winter, May , June, July, Ideal temperatures) The gorge consists of 13 sections & there are several ways to view the gorge. You can take several walks along the rim of the gorge, canoe, the... More

This was the highlight of my Melbourne-Darwin trip. The most beautiful place I have ever been in my lifetime and I'll be back for sure. My family adored this place and if we had more time we would have gone there a second time. Amazing. Friendly staff.

One of the excursions offered on my journey from Darwin to Adelaide, travelling on 'The Ghan', was the opportunity to visit the Katherine Gorge.This was a highlight of the journey and a truly beautiful and memorable experience.The placid waters took us through a landscape of seemingly painted cliffs and rock faces and, as we rounded each new bend, an entirely...

Simply stunning location and the lodge really is a first class experience. The rugged ancient landscape combined with a collision of tropical oasis and barren environments makes this a place of amazing ecological diversity. Lush riverine habitats, tall towering cliffs, monsoon forest gullies and semi-arid scrublands of spinifex dotted with boulders.. This place has it. Be careful when bush walking... More

We did the 2 gorge tour that is run by the Jarwoyn People. Our guide was very informative and included a lot of Aboriginal stories into the tour which improved our understanding of the region, the people and the culture. We were quite happy that it is still the end of the wet season or the "knock 'em down storm... More

We went to Katherine about a week ago as we had never been up here and of course we had to do a cruise through the Katherine Gorge. Maybe it was the wrong time of the year to do it and a few weeks later would have been better. Due to all the rain from the wet season, the water... More

Cruising the gorge in March was good timing. The tail end of the wet season saw plenty of water in the gorge but not yet into the tourist season. We went on a Nitmiluk cruise and there were only 10 of us. In full season it is chockers with 70-odd people on the hour every hour. The scenery is spectacular... More
