We booked a 30 minute scenic flight over the Gorge and what a trip. Our pilot Ben was excellent and we where able to take the whole thing in perspective. Doors off the helicopter for the best pics and as there has been a lot of rain the waterfalls were spectacular not to mention just the scenery in general.Not the... More

Had a great time today on the Nitmiluk HELI-TOURS. They have a number of options. We decided to do the 8 gorge tour which was scheduled for 15mins. We found the office very helpful advising us of the options available given changing weather and water conditions. We made our booking the morning if the trip. On arrival the pilot and... More

We were offered this cruise as a morning optional excursion from The Ghan train. Because of rains overnight, we were disappointed to not be able to do the First and Second Gorge tour, but this cruise offered beautiful cliff scenery and a short but challenging walk to see the rock art work that remains after thousands of years of exposure...

We will be talking about this tour for a long time. The best thing was we had a very small group (just us and 2 more people) so it was a personalised tour. The other boats did have large groups and some were older people. Im not sure what it would have been like in such a large grouping BUT... More

We went during the Wet season, which is generally not a great time to go, however it was a great cruise. Nearly didn't go ahead due to inclement weather, but we did the 2 gorge cruise with a lovely Aboriginal man. I think his name was Roland. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Lucky for us there were only... More

VIEWPOINT TREKKING ALONE WON’T MAKE YOU A GORGE EXPERT Listen up trendsetters. You don’t have to do on of these cruises when visiting the Gorge – there’s a ton of other attractions to fill the time. But if you want a full understanding of the place, this does the trick. And that’s speaking as a world class cheapskate – the... More

Incredible scenery, great commentary and explanation from Matt the pilot. Not for the faint hearted - there weren't any doors on the helicopter we were in but I think you can ask for them. Definitely recommend going before wet season begins, only so that when we go again in the wet we can see the drastic change! Great value for... More

We went on the two gorge two hour boat tour. It was very hot but plenty of water was available on the boat. There is some walking but you don’t have to do the long walk between the two gorges. Some in our group stayed in the shade on the boat or just looked at the amazing rock art on... More

Spent an interesting afternoon on the two gorge tour with our guide Richard. He gave detailed information all along the way. A highlight was the rock paintings we saw between the first and second gorges and we had plenty of time to photograph them and learn the stories behind them. We could easily move around the boat for photography as... More
