Nitimuluk is a deceptively large park which encompasses both Katherine Gorge and Edith Falls, which are many kilometres from each other. Of the two main attractions the gorge is the main attraction, but Edith Falls is a great place to enjoy a cool swim, which, because of crocodiles, is often not possible near the gorge.

We arrived at the visitor centre late in the afternoon and had no problems checking in. We parked our Motorhome close to the pool area. Inside the pool are is a fantastic bar and grill where you choose your steak, fish or chicken to be cooked. Fabulous choice of vegetables and salads in a buffet style. Whilst eating our amazing dinner we couldn't help but notice the large number of bats taking off into the night from the surrounding trees. Unfortunately when they return early in the morning (around 4am) the noise is quite disturbing. Our second morning wasn't as bad as we knew what to expect.
The amenities block was quite spacious with numerous clean toilets and showers, excellent hot water and the use of the washing machines in the laundry are free.
We did the 3 Gorge tour at 9am. This was a fantastic way to see the Gorge. Our guide, Richard, was very informative without being boring, and enjoyed a good laugh. He had excellent local knowlegde and history. He was extremely considerate polite and made for a fabulous morning out on the Gorge
Highly recommend.

I refer the the camping ground right at the Nitmiluk Information Centre right near the boat ramps. We were thrilled to arrive at such an oasis, and secure a powered site nearby the beautiful pool and bar/cafe. Imagine our dismay to find the camping area trees were alive with heaps of bats. These guys screamed all night as they flew in and out. Such a shame as the camping grounds are so ideally located, and the facilities are wonderful, not to mention that you are right on the spot for the boats cruises on the Gorge. It was an e haunting night with hardly any sleep. Definitely take ear plugs if you want to stay there. The bats are protected and they are also in a National Park. I doubt they will leave any time soon,

A very beautifully rich colored gorge that is fantastic when going on a boat, although, wished we had canoed down ourselves in hindsight. It was very cold, even though mid June, so be sure to wrap up. Priceless beauty.
