Nestled in the rocky wilderness of Nitmiluk National Park, Katherine Gorge is one of the Northern Territory’s natural treasures. After early morning pickup at your Darwin hotel, travel via comfortable coach approximately 3 hours inland while your knowledgeable guide shares commentary on the passing landscape. Stop to stretch your legs and pay tribute to fallen World War II soldiers at the Adelaide River War Cemetery. 

Once inside the park, take a refreshing swim in the natural rock pool at the base of Edith Falls (weather conditions permitting). Enjoy a picnic lunch amidst the serene and picturesque surroundings. 

In the afternoon, embark on a 2-hour cruise down the river that winds between the sheer sandstone cliffs of Katherine Gorge. Learn about the area’s geologic history from your guide, and catch a glimpse of ancient Aboriginal rock art on the gorge walls. Keep an eye out for native wildlife including turtles, colorful birds and even crocodiles sunning on the riverbanks!

Hop back on the coach for a brief tour of the township of Katherine, heart of the Northern Territory’s cattle and agricultural industries. On the return drive to Darwin, pass through the historic gold mining town of Pine Creek and stop in Adelaide Creek for dinner at a local restaurant (own expense). Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

Katherine Amazing
Charles_C
, Oct 2021
The Gorge is amazing. It was a long day. Unfortunately made longer as we were forced to stop for dinner, at our cost. Not the best meal. Would have preferred to get back to the hotel earlier and feed ourselves as it was a long long day.

I will pass along your feedback to our Senior Management Team and thanks for taking the time to provide us with this as it helps improve our service in the future. Thanks, The Team at AAT Kings

Very peaceful and beautiful. The stories were great to hear on how it was made and that the rainbow snake is still there sleeping. Maybe do it in the cooler months.

Stunning Katherine Gorge was amazing
Margaret_C
, Sep 2021
I am not sure why that we were picked up in different buses and then had to wait a the Mantra for the actual bus - seemed unorganised and added to an already extremely long day. The 5 starts is for the stunning Katherine Gorge. We stopped at a terrible place for coffee (out of a machine) and then had 20 mins at a War Memorial at Adelaide River - this was an excessive amount of time. At Edith Falls we were given 45 mins… barely enough time to enjoy a swim. But grateful to cool down. Lunch was a delicious buffet. The cruise along the Katherine Gorge was the highlight. We were told that we had to purchase something at Katharine because our dinner stop was closed down (COVID). It took an excessively long time to drop off passengers, barely enough time to pack and get to the airport with no opportunity to have dinner. Overall the experience was worth the arduous trip

Dear Margaret_C, Thanks very much for taking the time to review our tour, and we are delighted to read that you enjoyed touring the Katherine region with us. At the start of the tour we have a central meeting point where you meet another coach, this is so we can lessen the amount of hotels we pick-up guests from at the start of the day, as we appreciate that we are travelling a lot of distance when the tour commences. Each of our stops are timed to maximise the experience, and we try to balance this out as much as we can. Unfortunately, due to the current situation with Covid our dinner stop is closed down, which is why we advised you to purchase something in Katherine. At the end of the tour we make sure our passengers are dropped off at their hotel. We hope that you enjoyed your time in the Top End, and we look forward to welcoming you back on board again in the future. Thanks, The Team at AAT Kings

Edith falls was great, lovely scenery. Katherine gorge enjoyable. Lunch was good. The only downfall was the drive there and back, but you can’t do anything about that.

The Gorge is amazing but be prepared for a very long day
Kylie_B
, Aug 2021
A very long day, we got picked up at 6.10am and dropped off at 8.45pm, a lot of stops, we would have preferred to just keep on the road but understand some people need to stop a lot if they aren’t used to long drives Edith Falls was a good stop and that would of been enough for us Lunch was really good, a buffet selection which catered for all and a comfortable setting The Gorge tour was amazing and our guides were great, well worth the long trip Bus was comfortable, our guide was Lovely but really hard to hear him and understand him so we missed a lot of what he was saying, which is why we did a tour rather than drive ourselves to hear all the information from the guide along the way so that was a shame
