Full description

Spend the day exploring Nitmiluk National Park in a small group. Featuring Katherine Gorge and Edith Falls, this day trip takes you from Darwin to the home of the Jawoyn people. Cruise through impressive landscapes, learn about the park's history, and see local flora and fauna as you explore the park.

While traveling in a luxury 4WD vehicle down south along Stuart Highway, learn fascinating history on the way to Katherine Gorge. Hear about the 13 impressive gorges carved from ancient sandstone located in Nitmiluk National Park and find out where the park's name comes from. Once arriving, enjoy lunch at the Visitor Center in the natural surroundings of Katherine River.

Experience the park's rugged landscapes, cascading waterfalls, and a wide variety of flora and fauna. Take a 2-hour cruise and break for a short walk between the gorges to see some Aboriginal rock art. Watch out for some sunbathing freshwater crocodiles.

Then, see Edith Falls and a short walk or dip into the natural pool. Spot some archer fish and other variations of fish in the paperbark and pandanus fringed pool. Afterward, stop at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, the second biggest in Australia. From here head back to Darwin after an exciting, but also relaxing day at Nitmiluk National Park.
