Katherine Gorge Day Trip from Darwin with Cruise and Buffet Lunch

We travelled in a luxury coach driven by John, a very experienced driver with a great sense of humour whose knowledge of the area he was taking us was excellent. Our refreshment breaks at Emerald Springs Roadhouse for both breakfast and evening dinner was a good choice; breakfast egg and bacon sandwich was superb and their Scotch fillet with chips was delicious. ...Anonymous, – See more reviews

Katherine Gorge set deep within the stone country of Nitmiluk National Park is a dramatic setting. The towering rock wall ramparts above the Katherine River, ancient Aboriginal Dreamtime stories, prolific bird life and a boat journey into the never never land highlight the grandeur of this spectacular gorge.

Edith Falls cascading down the sheer rock wall face into a paper bark encompassed plunge pool, Pine Creek historic town and the Adelaide River War Cemetery offer amazing contrasts in a powerful outback land.
