9am daily departure, May – August


Adult $189
Children (ages 6-15) $109


Prepare for a truly memorable experience as you travel through time and the three gorges of Nitmiluk Gorge.

Cruise through the first gorge then take a short 400m walk before boarding a second boat to cruise through the second gorge. At the end of the second gorge, there is an 800m walk to get to another boat at the third gorge.

Your expert tour guides will share the in-depth history and function of the eight to ten thousand year old Indigenous rock art you will see on this journey.

Whilst visiting the third gorge, you’ll have the opportunity to swim at the Lillypond seasonal waterfalls or at the shallow rock pools – a great way to cool off in the heat of the day. There may also be opportunities to swim in the first two gorges depending on the time of year you visit.

This slower paced tour allows you ample opportunity to chat and ask questions of your knowledgeable tour guides who love to share their passion with our guests.

Fantastic morning

This was a highlight of our time in Katherine. The cruise driver was Dave and he made the cruise special with his down to earth way and his knowledge of the gorge. You have lots of time to enjoy and take photos, there are 3 short but easy walks between gorges where you change boats but these are suitable for all ages.
