You will be picked up from your hotel and travel in an air-conditioned coach for an action-packed day to the Katherine Gorge. Interesting commentary by your English-speaking driver will enliven the journey.
The first stop will be at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, near the Adelaide River. Pause for a solemn moment at this memorial of the Darwin air raids in the 1940s.
Proceed to the Nitmiluk National Park, a 292,800 hectare National Park owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. It is famous for its spectacular sandstone landscape, broad valleys and numerous, significant cultural sites. But the biggest attraction here is the breathtaking Katherine Gorge which is not one gorge but a series of 13 gorges along the Katherine River.
Continue the tour with a drive through the outback township of Katherine, the third largest in the territory.
There will be a break for a picnic lunch during this tour.
Proceed to the superb Edith Falls that come cascading down the sheer rock wall and fill three pools. Stretch your legs with a short walk or take a refreshing dip in the waterhole below the Falls (conditions permitting).
Conclude your tour with a 2-hour guided cruise through the 12-kilometre long Gorge. Move along the blue waters, hemmed in on either side by the sheer, richly colored escarpments of the Katherine Gorge canyon.
At the end of the tour you will return to Darwin where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
