  • This has been a massive highlight! 20 minute Helicopter flight over the 3 Gorges. Book and pay at Nitmiluk info Centre. Only $105. We flew with the windows out which made it so much better. Scenery is...  more »

  • This is an great spot. Peace beauty and nature what more can one ask for. Cheap to camp as well
  • An incredible sight - one of Central Australia's most beautiful places. It's so good to hear how it's being cared for in partnership with the local indigenous community. Make sure you do at least two of the gorges on a boat trip. If you can spend some extra time seeing some other parts of the park, that's even better. There's a visitors centre that has a lot of really good information.
  • Very important and clever tour. The Nitmiluk indigenous guide was very funny but also very helpful and educational. I was very impressed with the tour.
  • Absolutely fell inlove with the place the instant I laid my eyes on it. I recommend going on the 3 gorge tour not only are the views to die for but our tour guide Richard made the trip so much more worth it thankyou for your wonderful knowledge and great sense of humour cannot wait to come back!!
  • Being in Katherine on the first day of the Dry Season we weren't allowed to swim yet but that just means we have an excuse to come back. This place is amazing. Thanks to the Jawoyn Tribe for letting us visit their part of this beautiful country.
