Katherine Day Tour from Darwin including Katherine Gorge Cruise
From US$202.34
Explore the natural wonders of the Katherine Gorge on a full-day tour from Darwin. Visit a natural swimming hole at Edith Falls, take a boat cruise for a look at crocodiles and Aboriginal rock art on sandstone cliffs, pass through the historical gold rush town of Pine Creek, and tour Katherine by bus. Leave the navigation and long drive to the pros, and take in the sights with ease.
What to Expect

After early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel, travel inland for about three hours to Katherine Gorge, located in Nitmiluk National Park. Relax in the comfortable bus and stop briefly at Adelaide River War Cemetery, a burial place for World War II soldiers. 

When you reach the park, cool off at crocodile-free Edith Falls (conditions permitting) and enjoy a picnic lunch. Next, take a 2-hour scenic cruise on the river that cuts through Katherine Gorge. Learn about the region’s geology and Aboriginal history, look for ancient Aboriginal rock art, and perhaps spot crocodiles, turtles, and colorful birds.

Then tour the township of Katherine by bus, hearing about the Northern Territory’s cattle and agricultural industries before heading back to Darwin via Pine Creek, an atmospheric gold mining town. 

Make a short stop to purchase dinner in Adelaide River, then end your tour with drop-off at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

The AAT Kings staff were great and the tour was great. It's a long day but we knew that and were prepared for it. The coach was very comfortable and we would highly recommend it.

So we got picked up about 6am and arrive back around 9:00/9:30pm I think. The actual Gorge Tour was from 1pm til 3pm. You stop for a coffee (and scone) along the way and back at the same place for dinner. I used the bus... More
