NITMILUK – KATHERINE GORGE
Nitmiluk National Park features a massive gorge carved through layers of sandstone by the Katherine River
You can hire a canoe or take a boat cruise up the gorge. We had a guide with a good knowledge of the local geology, vegetation and cultural history, which gave us a better appreciation of the gorge.
Ancient rock art is scattered throughout the gorge

This little guy watched on, amused, as we painted on the banks of the river.

Nice photos. It’s always great to be reminded that a place is truly as wonderful as one remembers it.
Glad to be triggering some memories for you.
I have to pinch myself sometimes, this part of the country really is awesome.
