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.

Canoeing was awesome

We decided to canoe the George with two kids (age 7 & 10) and it was worth it. We didn't get the commentary you get on the boat but it was an amazing experience. You can take it... read more

We decided to canoe the George with two kids (age 7 & 10) and it was worth it. We didn't get the commentary you get on the boat but it was an amazing experience. You can take it as easy as you like, so there is no fitness level required. The experience of canoeing in such an incredible natural landscape... More

Fabulous and a must do. I recommend taking a tour and we went with Mituluk tours who were fantastic. You won't be able to go into the actually gorges without a tour. Next time we will be doing the canoeing through the gorges as that looked so good. There were people doing the canoeing with kids even. Our tour guide... More

This is the second time we have done a cruise on the gorge, but this time we treated ourselves to a dinner cruise. The evening begins with a 2 gorge cruise before boarding our restaurant cruiser. Watching the sunset on the gorge was amazing with plenty of opportunities to take some great photos. Our guide made our experience fun and... More

I only had a very limited amount of time and wanted to see as much as I could. I did a 15min helicopter ride for a very reasonable price with helispirit who was able to fit us in at very short notice. Highly recommend!

I was pleased that we didn't do the dinner cruise as there would have been too much going on and we would have missed some of the excellent commentary from the young archaeologist who conducted the cruise. She was friendly and efficient. Some seemed to struggle a bit with the walking even though the walking pathways were beautifully made. We'd... More

Did the 2-gorge trip and saw some amazing scenery. The guides are quite knowledgeable and willing to answer any queries. Did the evening dinner cruise and the food was excellent with the chef cooking the main course on the spot. Friendly servers. A memorable experience.
