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!

Hello - how safe is the drive back to Katherine at night after the sunset cruise? Is it a busy run back perhaps with fellow travellers? Thanks!

You just need to slow down...watch the sides of the road for the little critters and use high beam when no other cars in front or oncoming. Don't get distracted when driving and you'll be fine.
Hello, I would like to hire a double canoe on the 28th of June. Where can I hire a canoe from? Also I am interested in the sunset tour. Who operates this tour? Susan

Not too sure about the sunset tour. Ask the visitors centre. Really helpful staff. And some great gifts to take home.
