Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge)

Katherine Gorge has been on my bucket list for years. I don’t know why really, but it has always been this place that I have heard of and one day hoped I would visit. I can now tick it off my list, although as with many things on this trip, there is so much I didn’t get to see.

It is the sheer size of Nitmiluk Gorge that is so overwhelming. In fact it is not one gorge but 13 gorges. I quickly realised that we were not going to see much if we relied solely on our feet for walking so we decided that we would splurge a little and take out one of the cruises. I am so glad we did. The cruise has been one of the highlights of our trip so far. The kids were all very excited too. One day in the future I would love to canoe down the gorges and camp in one of the camp sites situated throughout the park only accessible by canoe. How cool would that be? There is one gorge aptly named ‘Butterfly Gorge’ that provides shelter for thousands of common crow butterflies. Hopefully in the future…

Our day at Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge).
