Discover Australia's Katherine Gorge in the Northern Territory.
Katherine Gorge: A visit to Darwin is not complete without a visit to the world famous Katherine Gorge. Known by the aboriginal name Nitmiluk, a cruise through Katherine Gorge is an amazing experience. The Gorge is located in Nitmiluk National Park and is one of the most spectacular areas in the country, winding 12 km with walls more than 70m high. The 13 wonderful gorges of Nitmiluk National Park were formed 23 million years ago as torrents of water poured along tiny cracks in the earth.
Katherine Gorge Cruises: There are a number of Katherine Gorge Cruises available from an easy two hour cruise with or without a short walk to a four hour tour/cruise that includes some walking. For those who are fit and enjoy a bit of rock climbing a strenuous full day adventure of cruising and walking is available. Katherine Gorge Cruises also have options of a Dawn Break Breakfast cruise and Nabilil Dreaming Sunset Cultural Cruise.
You can discover Katherine Gorge at your own pace in a rental canoe or fly over by a helicopter. Spend a night in Katherine at one of the many hotels, motels or resorts or at Donkey Camp Bed and Breakfast to let you maximise your time. Make sure you visit to Cutta Cutta Caves and the Mataranka Thermal Pools if you are based in Katherine for a couple of days.
