Join a morning cruise to Katherine Gorge, Nitmiluk National Park's main attraction, to see a pristine natural world teeming with wildlife. This gorge system has great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of the national park. There are many ways for you to experience this lush environment and its world-renowned gorge system. You can walk, swim, canoe, boat, or fly. Walks over the sandstone plateau range from one to five hours and offer unobstructed views of the unspoiled landscape. You can rent or bring your own canoe to the park, and helicopter flights can show you the park's wildlife from above. Keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles, which enter the Katherine River during the wet season. Add Katherine Gorge to your Katherine travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Katherine route planner.
