Katherine Gorge is the tourism centre piece of the Nitmiluk National Park.
The Gorge is over 16km long. In the dry season it is made up of 13 separate gorges each separated by natural rock rapids and waterfalls.
In the wet season, the monsoon, the water depth is, average 7 metres higher and the Gorge is one rushing torrent of water.
I was there in the dry season.
From a kayak there is a water eye view of the steep cliffs and the little barriers that separate the 13 sub gorges.
On an evening boat cruise at sunset the colours and the reflections take on a more reddish hew.
And after the sun has set
If your lucky the full moon rises
And of course there are the inhabitants of Katherine Gorge
The fresh water crocodiles
The colours of Katherine Gorge are indeed beautiful!
