- On request
Leaving Darwin travel south through tropical country, passing former WWII airstrips en route to Adelaide River. You will make a short stop at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, a site dedicated to those killed in the air raids in Darwin in the 1940's.
Continue to Edith Falls, where there is time for a refreshing swim in the paperbark and pandanas fringed waterhole beneath the falls (conditions permitting). After your included lunch, join a 1.5 hour Gorge Cruise through Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park, a swim opportunity and a detailed visit to the Rock Art Site. The cruise will travel as far up the second gorge as possible, and will allow time for passengers to swim, so don't forget to bring your bathers! Your tour of the first two gorges takes you past sheer rock walls and requires a short walk to reach the second gorge. Enjoy a brief tour of Katherine, the hub of the region's cattle and farming industries. Travel via Pine Creek, an historic gold mining town, to your evening stop at Adelaide River where you may purchase dinner (own expense) before returning to Darwin.
