Highlights
  • Discover Katherine Gorge, one of the Northern Territory’s natural treasures
  • See the gorge, its wildlife, and Aboriginal rock art during a river cruise
  • Swim at Edith Falls, tour Katherine, and see Pine Creek, a gold mining town
  • Tour includes lunch and round-trip transportation from your Darwin hotel
What to Expect
After early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel, travel inland for about three hours to Katherine Gorge, located in Nitmiluk National Park. Relax in the comfortable bus and stop briefly at Adelaide River War Cemetery, a burial place for World War II soldiers.  When you reach the park, cool off at crocodile-free Edith Falls (conditions permitting) and enjoy a picnic lunch. Next, take a 2-hour scenic cruise on the river that cuts through Katherine Gorge. Learn about the region’s geology and Aboriginal history, look for ancient Aboriginal rock art, and perhaps spot crocodiles, turtles, and colorful birds. Then tour the township of Katherine by bus, hearing about the Northern Territory’s cattle and agricultural industries before heading back to Darwin via Pine Creek, an atmospheric gold mining town.  Make a short stop to purchase dinner in Adelaide River, then end your tour with drop-off at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

Well organised day...although it is a long one. We started at 6 and got back 21::30, it’s not a problem....as the day just flies. Katherine Gorge is well worth the effort. I went then end of the dry season and it was beautiful...I’d love to see the contrast of the wet season.

Hi cavie71, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so happy to read that you enjoyed your experience with AAT Kings during your Katherine Gorge Cruise & Edith Falls Full Day Tour. We are pleased you took the opportunity to take a dip at Edith Falls - it is the perfect spot for a refreshing morning dip. Our current low water levels at Katherine Gorge certainly provide for great viewing - very majestic indeed. We hope to see you back in the Top End to experience the splendour of our Tropical Summer. Happy Travels, AAT Kings
