Nice views, relaxing way to explore the river can stop where you like. You can paddle up to 3 sections of river we only did 1. Wasn’t the kind of tour I’d expected obviously I didn’t research enough I’d basically call it canoe hire as no guides. We didn’t bring food either

I cannot recommend this trip more highly - one of THE BEST NT experiences! What a sensational way to experience the gorge - at your own pace - jumping in for a swim whenever the mood takes. We paddled to the end of the 3rd gorge, and then walked and swam into the fourth gorge on

Fantastic morning beginning with a boat cruise through the first gorge with our guide Harley who explained do's and Don'ts together with interesting facts. We then collected our life vests and paddles and boarded our double canoe. Time to explore the next two gorges, swim in the

Thank you for your positive feedback PerN503, We are happy to know that you enjoyed your time. The Gorge really is a lovely destination for teenagers, as it offers the opportunity to learn, slow down - always good with teenagers generally exposed to a continous overload of information- together with the adventure element. Thanks for spending your time with us while visiting the NT!

Beautiful way to explore the canyon, but I would not recommend going further than the 3rd gorge, since you have to carry your canoe to the next gorge by yourself which is already a very hard job for only 5 minutes, the way to the 4th gorge is 40! minutes! So, take it easy, bring

Thank you for your positive review 1970saskiak, Canoeing at the Gorge is spectacular and certainly requires different levels of fitness, depending on which Gorge our Guests decide to explore. It's always important to be prepared, read the information provided by the Reservations Team or on the Parks and Wildlife website, and, as you suggest... taking your time. Nature is better enjoyed at a slower pace. Thanks for deciding to spend your time exploring our country 1970saskiak
