    Went canoeing in Gorges 2 & 3 today. Unbelievably beautiful. Sure we could have gone on a cruise, but to be able to paddle up and touch 1.6million year old rock walls that tower above you, to be able to slide under the many overhangs, to be able to stop paddling and just drift in this amazing place is beyond words. Every person should have this experience. Absolutely amazing.

    A must see in the northern territory. Imposing sheer walled gorges that seem to go on forever. Did a cruise of the gorge, which was full of great views as well as some rock art and the walk to butterfly gorge. Fantastic to swim in the gorge. Would love to have had the time to do more of the walks.

    It's the heat to do the cruise in the morning because it's too hot during the day but it's very beautiful.

    Great swimming at Edith Falls. Family friendly and great picnic area. 2nd visit and would go back. 20 kms in off the highway, caravan friendly road with parking bay. Worth the drive in.

    Fantastic scenery. Affordable boat trip. 2 hours or beauty and the occasional croc. A must see
