I had such a wonderful time. The bus was comfortable and driver and all guides were amazing. I especially loved the local guide on the river cruise. He was so interesting and knowledgeable and great sense of humour. First time to NT but I will be back. Thanks for everything.

In our opinion, the really long journey from Darwin to the Nitmiluk NP was worth it. Kathrine Gorge offers a very beautiful nature as well as flora and fauna. But even on the long bus trip there was always something to see along the way.

Great day, was lucky to have a small group. Our driver/guide Callum was excellent keeping us informed all the way. Edith Falls very pretty. Our guide Matt on the Gorge was terrific also.

It was warm enough to swim at Edith Falls but we didn't bother as there was to much to see and photograph.
