Katherine Gorges

In the Katherine Gorges we took the 3 gorges tour, which meant we had to change boat twice on the way up and twice on the way back. The water level was to low to pass over the rapids between the gorges. The views were great with lots of information about the heritage of the site being given by our guide.

Towards the end of the tour, before we getting into the last boat we had time for a quick swim in the rock pools of the river… we were assured that the river had been checked many times for “salties” and that the “freshies” would not bother us…

After our swim and on the way down the last stretch of the river we did indeed see fresh water crocodiles sun bathing on the rocks…

After our trip up the through the gorges it was time for lunch, we then had time for a walk to see our main interest at the site, the Livistona Inermis palm tree.

After our walk it was back to the bus for a drive through the Kakadu National Park on our way to Jabiru where we were to stay the night.
