Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Off train excursion”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We did the first gorge tour and thoroughly enjoyed this trip. They supplied fresh fruit and cold drinks as we were leaving. The commentary was excellent.

“AATKings Katherine Gorge Full Day Tour”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

It is a long day (6.15am pick up and 8.30pm drop off) but with a comfortable coach and a very courteous & most informative driver (Mark) plus great sightseeing at Adelaide River, Edith Falls and Katherine Gorge made it a most enjoyable day out.

“Expensive but worth it.”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The boat trip up the gorge was very expensive at $75 per person. But the guide was a nice fella with a good line in patter and lots of information. The gorge speaks for itself though. I wouldn't bother doing a longer than two gorge trip (last time I was here I did the 5 gorge safari and I was gorged out by the end).

“Truly beautiful”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Cruised the first Gorge in a Ghan off-train excursion and we are so glad we did. It was a very hot and humid day but the views were so striking we almost forgot how uncomfortable we were.
There was fresh fruit and water available as we boarded the barge and we appreciated the very informative on-board narrative.
Every bend in the waterway seems to offer a new and even more impressive view. This is nature at her best.
