Things to Do in Katherine Gorge

Here are the best ways to see Katherine Gorge…

Check out Aboriginal Rock Art Sites

If you want to see incredible rock art that dates back over 40,000 years old, head over to the top of First Gorge where you can see some excellently preserved examples.

Relax in Katherine Hot Springs

The series of clear pools are the perfect place to sit and relax in after a long day of exploring. There are several scenic walking trails nearby and places to unpack a picnic.

Check Out Edith Falls (Leliyn)

This huge 8-12 metre tiered waterfall is a picturesque setting where you can swim in its refreshing pool, or grab a refreshing drink from the kiosk nearby.

Hike the Jatbula Trail (or some of it)

The Jatbula Trail is a multi-day hike from Katherine Gorge to Edith Falls. The trail is around 62km long and is expected to take up to six days to complete because it’s a grade 4 track, meaning it’s a moderately challenging trail.

Take a Scenic Helicopter Flight

One of the best ways to see Katherine Gorge is from above. You can take a scenic 30-minute helicopter flight over the gorge, leaving from Katherine.
