The town of Katherine offers visitors the opportunity to experience the inspiring wonders of Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge)- a deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River. Katherine Gorge is made up of thirteen gorges. Walks over the sandstone plateau range from an hour to five days and offer spectacular views of the gorge. Some, like the 58-kilometre Jatbula Trail, take in most of Nitmiluk’s landscapes – monsoon forest, stone country, upland swamp, woodland and river. Canoes can be hired at the gorge, and commercially operated two, four and eight hour cruises are available, as well as helicopter flights. The gorges and the surrounding landscape have great significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of Nitmiluk National Park.
