“3* Camping in Nitmiluk”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The location is outstanding, great walking and even the boat trip was good if costly. The Nitmiluk camp site is a bit tired and limited, with no proper grey water disposal, nice pool though and incredible bird life. We made a quick exit after two days when the site was invaded by hordes of school children, we counted twelve minibuses and there may have been more which put the communal facilities under extreme pressure. You need to provision in Katherine which is 30something kms away. Water at A$6 for 500ml seems excessive!!

“Car necessary”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

It was great that we had a lovely guy at our hostel from Canada Zac who very kindly drove the four of us ladies to Nitmiluk so we could enjoy a morning canoeing the gorge

“Canoeing and camping in Nitmiluk”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Powered site in NP. lovely site with a great Pool, just a short walk away from the gorge and canoe hire. Took along time to find a pitch as not numbered and people had taken more room than they should, but kind campers lent us an extension cable so we could get power. Lovely natural setting with good amenities. Wallabies a plenty.

Canoeing was brilliant but it is quite hard work but worth it to get to second gorge for swimming. Beautiful setting well worth a visit.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Simply amazing so beautiful and hardly anyone there. Falls relatively small but simply beautiful. Just a short distance from Katherine. Not to be overlooked

“Gorgeous place and eat at the information centre!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We decided to walk as the boats were already fully booked and the canoes seemed very pricey... and did not regret it!
We did the 8.4km Windolf walk (not difficult) and enjoyed magnificent views from the top of the gorge cliffs. Then we made our way down to Southern Rockhole (nothing much in the dry), but continued along past the rockhole and ended up on the river banks. There we enjoyed a lovely cool swim and the kids took delight in waving to the tourist boats as they went past.
After our return to the information centre we ordered the most delicious barramundi burgers and fish and chips - the best we had in the Territory! Sitting on the huge balcony made our lunch even more enjoyable.
