Imagine canoeing between the massive sandstone cliffs of Nitmiluk Gorge, swagging under the stunning night skies – far from the crowds – just you and the ancient wonder of this iconic destination. Nitmiluk Tours has just announced that the Gorge has been opened for it’s Under The Stars overnight canoe hire as of 13 June 2014.

Under The Stars overnight hire allows you plenty of freedom in activities including swimming, photography, bush walking and exploring. Feel a spiritual connection as you venture away from the crowds in the tranquil and secluded 5th, 6th and 7th Gorge – where no cruise boats venture. The first designated overnight campsite is the 5th gorge, which is approximately 9kms from the Visitors Centre. A very high level of fitness is required for this tour.

“We encourage all guests who wish to part take in canoe hire to pre-book as this product. Access to overnight hire on the Gorge is limited to 10 guests at any one time, so it fills up very quickly,” said Nitmiluk Tours Marketing Manager Ms Corinne Lewis. “The Gorge is one of the most picturesque places to canoe in Australia – guests can admire the stunning views, get up close to the wildlife, explore the rocky escarpments from the riverbank or cool off at a sandy beach with a swim – all at their own pace.”

OVERNIGHT – 8AM – 4PM (following day)
DOUBLE – $70p/p
