Stunningly beautiful location. The dinner cruise on the Katherine Gorge is a unique experience. Very special. We stayed at Cicada Lodge and it could not be faulted. Excellent quality and personal service. Highly recommend.

From a Kakadu campervan experience, Katherine Gorge was most probably a highlight with good hikes and good facilities. However, the bats are a problem. Also, I am not a camper and hence do not get the camping experience of sitting in dust or crowded pools....More

The gorge is superb, a cruise or canoe trip is a must. There are also some great walks, the easy 5km loop is great.

You just need to slow down...watch the sides of the road for the little critters and use high beam when no other cars in front or oncoming. Don't get distracted when driving and you'll be fine.

Not too sure about the sunset tour. Ask the visitors centre. Really helpful staff. And some great gifts to take home.
