What You Can Expect

Katherine Day Tour from Darwin including Katherine Gorge Cruise

Katherine Gorge Lookout

Nestled in the rocky wilderness of Nitmiluk National Park, Katherine Gorge is one of the Northern Territory’s natural treasures. After early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel, travel via comfortable coach approximately 3 hours inland while your knowledgeable guide shares commentary on the passing landscape. Stop to stretch your legs and pay tribute to fallen World War II soldiers at the Adelaide River War Cemetery. 
Once inside the park, take a refreshing swim in the natural rock pool at the base of Edith Falls (weather conditions permitting). Enjoy a picnic lunch amidst the serene and picturesque surroundings. 
In the afternoon, embark on a 2-hour cruise down the river that winds between the sheer sandstone cliffs of Katherine Gorge. Learn about the area’s geologic history from your guide, and catch a glimpse of ancient Aboriginal rock art on the gorge walls. Keep an eye out for native wildlife including turtles, colorful birds and even crocodiles sunning on the riverbanks!
Hop back on the coach for a brief tour of the township of Katherine, heart of the Northern Territory’s cattle and agricultural industries. On the return drive to Darwin, pass through the historic gold mining town of Pine Creek and stop in Adelaide for dinner at a local restaurant (own expense). Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

Great day, although be prepared for a long one. The dip in Edith Falls was lovely, especially as my mother's name was Edith! The various stops along the way all enjoyable and came at the right time. The gorge is awe inspiring. Very very glad we did it.

The tour was absolutely fantastic. What a wonderful day. I loved the cruise down the gorge. Everything I could wish for and more. Lunch provided was in a cafe and excellent. The courier was informative and entertaining. The journey back was tiring but that could not be helped.
