A lovely area in the Top End. Interesting landscapes and beautiful gorges. Katherine gorge is a highlight for sure. Deep red stones, lots of water. The NP is great to explore, camp and visit. Camp grounds are excellent. Lots of wallabies around.

This is a great place to visit on a tour. While you are waiting you can get lunch at the great cafe and also read about the place at the visitor centre. You can either sit inside or outside while you eat.

A visit to the NT is not complete unless you've visited Nitmiluk as its more commonly known nowadays. In days gone by it was of course Katherine Gorge but like many other things has reverted back to the indigenous naming. It is a true wonder,...More

This is a lovely area and we stayed at the camp ground which gave easy access to the cruises that go through Katherine Gorge. It is easy to get to from Katherine.

Nitmiluk is all about the gorges and what better way to see them than by rowing yourself in a canoe!! There are quite a number of gorges and depending on your fitness and tour option, some would be able to reach the fifth gorge. Your...More

You just need to slow down...watch the sides of the road for the little critters and use high beam when no other cars in front or oncoming. Don't get distracted when driving and you'll be fine.

Not too sure about the sunset tour. Ask the visitors centre. Really helpful staff. And some great gifts to take home.
