Nitmiluk Gorge – Part 1

By mid-afternoon, we arrived in Katherine, 317km south-east of Darwin. It was time to get off the train and explore.

We chose to go to Nitmiluk (formerly Katherine) Gorge, which was a good 30 minutes coach ride away from the train station.

It was a very hot 37C in Katherine (with humidity!) and we were glad to get on to the boat and under cover.

Boats are practically the only means of seeing the Gorge in March as the water levels were still high, and so was the chance of seeing a salt-water crocodile!
