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.
