“This is why we have National Parks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The Northern Territoy is an amazing place to experience and the Nitmilik NP just adds to the adventure. Everywhere you turn you can see the uniqueness of this area. The Gorge is breathtaking. Start at the Visitors Centre and from there just explore. Always have sun protection, plenty of drinking water and insect repellant. Take a good camera to record this amazing area.

a great big park, lots of walks, definitely recommend edith falls top pool, then head to Katherine for the night, a bit far for a day trip from Darwin so you need to stay overnight

“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We spent one full day at Nitmiluk National Park. There probably would never be enough days to try and do everything that there is to do in the park, but if you are restricted then try and squeeze in as much as possible. The morning started off early with a kayak hire for half the day and exploring the 1st gorge. We walked over to the 2nd before returning our kayak by 12pm. We returned later in the afternoon for the Nabilil Dreaming Sunset Dinner Cruise. This is a must do. The meal was fantastic and we met 2 lovely couples travelling around Australia. The sunset on the gorges are magnificent and the 4 hours are well worth it.

“Do it.”

I can't wait to have more visitors so I can go again. This is a truly stunning place. Make sure you wear something cool, take a hat , a bottle of water and some sunscreen.

“Must see attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

One of the most attractive places in the Northern Territory, stunning scenery with wildlife. There are 13 gorges, we took the cruise that covered the first and second gorges. In the tourist centre at the park, there is a shop and also a restaurant, ideal place stay away from the heat before the cruise. Take plenty of water and also wear some flat shoes because you have to walk to board another boat to see the second gorge. Good value for money, a must see attraction.
