Was truly magical , cruising through 3 of the 5 gorges, can definitely see why location is the backdrop for film makers

A magnificent part of Nitmiluk National Park is the Katherine Gorge. There are cruises to go on or kayaks if that's more your thing. A bit of a hike to the amazing panoramic view of the cliffs and rock structures is well worth it. I would also recommend Edith Falls as a great place for a swim and a walk to the different pools There.

I'm ashamed to say that I didn't actually make it to the gorge but I did visit Leyin Falls and they were beautiful. The swimming below the falls was excellent as was the hike up to the area called Sweetwater. I would have loved to have done the Jatbula Trail but they only grant permits to something like 15 people a day. That's great since it means that it doesn't get overcrowded but not so great if you aren't given that information well ahead of time.
