Katherine Day Tours and Trips from Darwin

The thirteen gorges along the Katherine River that make up Nitmiluk Gorge are Katherine’s main draw card for travellers. Nitmiluk, meaning ‘cicada place’, holds special importance to the local Aboriginal people as a meeting place for thousands of years, and is dotted with sacred sites and ancient rock art. There are plenty of ways to explore the gorge from the water, land or air. For energetic travellers, hiring a canoe offers an amazing perspective looking up from the water at the towering gorge walls, which reach up to 70 metres high. Boat tours explore further along the 12 kilometres of river and are a relaxing way to sit back and soak up the incredible scenery. There are also plenty of walking tracks to explore on foot and scenic flights that offer a bird’s eye view over the astonishing landscape.

Once you’ve explored the treasures of Nitmiluk National Park, continue south along the Stuart Highway to discover why Katherine the moniker of “where the Tropics meets the Outback.” Mataranka Thermal Pool and Bitter Springs in the Elsey National Park offer travellers a chance to relax in the crystal-clear, warm waters within a shaded oasis. Surrounded by pandanas, palms and paperbark trees, the naturally heated, spring fed waters are a welcome respite from long Outback drives.
