A trip to the Northern Territory is not complete without visiting the spectacular “Nitmiluk Gorge”. The most stunning gorge scenery in the Northern Territory, with raging waterfalls, a myriad of wildlife and breathtaking views of the Jawoyn country.

Guests can fly by helicopter to remote locations to swim in their very own crystal clear waterfall; be dropped at the very top of the Gorge system and canoe down; fly to remote rock art sites with an Indigenous guide to interpret images painted thousands of years before; or fly low over wildlife in the utter wilderness of southern Arnhem Land or up over the escarpment to experience the power of Kakadu from the air.

All tours have a cultural aspect, allowing travellers to learn, understand and appreciate the ancient stories and cultural of the areas traditional owners, the Jawoyn people.

The animal and birdlife of the Nitmiluk National Park has considerable conservation value and as such it makes the area a natural haven for nature and birding enthusiasts.

There are over 192 different species of birds that may be encountered, including colourful species such as the Red-collared Lorikeet, Red-winged Parrot, Northern Rosella and Blue-winged Kookaburra and less common species such as the Red Goshawk and Peregrine Falcon.

In the Gorge, colonies of flying foxes are commonly seen as are Freshwater Crocodiles, turtles and water monitors. Bushwalkers are almost certain to encounter Agile Wallabies, Antilopine Wallaroos and Euros, as well as the occasional Dingo.
