We loved Southern Rock hole! The walk is challenging but so worth it. You can walk both ways or catch the ferry or do a walk/ferry combo! A very special place!

The most amazing, scenic park/walk I have ever experienced. Friendly Rangers, information centre staff and great place for a coffee before heading out.

This has been a massive highlight! 20 minute Helicopter flight over the 3 Gorges. Book and pay at Nitmiluk info Centre. Only $105. We flew with the windows out which made it so much better. Scenery is jaw dropping and our pilot Matthew was informative and funny. 10/10

Enjoyed a 2 hour trip in 2 Gorges, im blown away just how amazing the gorge is, the guide taking us was very informative and even gave us a good laugh. I would recommend going on a cruise as it is really worth it. I will be back in the dry season for sure
