Itinerary

Katherine Gorge is located within amazing Nitmiluk National Park, which spans more than 292,000 hectares. With rugged landscapes, thundering waterfalls and unlimited flora and fauna, Nitmiluk is a haven for adventurers and nature lovers alike. The name Nitmiluk meaning ‘Cicada Place’, came from the Jawoyn people who are the traditional custodians of the Park. Travel along Australia’s longest highway, the Stuart, on your way into Nitmiluk National Park and Katherine Gorge. Stop at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, dedicated to those who lost their lives in the north of Australia during World War II. Enter Nitmiluk national park, with its rugged landscapes, thundering waterfalls, and diverse flora and fauna. Visit Leliyn or Edith Falls, where during the dry season you can take a refreshing swim in the waterhole beneath the falls. Throughout Nitmiluk you’ll see Aboriginal rock art that expresses in images the deep spiritual culture of the Jawoyn people, traditional owners of this land. Enjoy a buffet lunch in a shaded outdoor setting. Browse through the Visitor Centre and see photographs, memorabilia, and traditional Aboriginal artefacts. On your two hour cruise through the 70 metres high sandstone walls of Katherine Gorge, keep your eyes peeled for freshwater crocodiles, wonderful birdlife and amazing scenery.
