What a hidden treasure cruising through the gorges. Guides were very knowledgable, it's great learning about the history of the area and the indigenous stories were fascinating. Whole new appreciation for our Australian outback, how lucky we are to have these places. The only good thing that has come from Covid is having the chance to explore our own country more. Loved it.

We took three tours and enjoyed them all. Firstly we did the two gorge boat tour. This is simple, accessible, enjoyable and informative. The following day we did the canoeing self guided tour. We were taken by boat through the first gorge, picked up kayaks at the second gorge and kayaked into the third gorge. This was very enjoyable. We followed that with a 13 gorge helicopter tour and remote landing. It was great to look down and see where we had been. We were at the end of the dry season, and water levels were reducing but all of these activities could still be enjoyed. It would be great to return in the wet.

The 2 hr cruise was perfect. The tour guide was full of knowledge about the gorges and the dream time spirits. Walking in between the gorges was easy with all the paved walkways/steps. The boats had a toilet and cold water to refill your water bottles. Great cruise.
