Nitmiluk Tours – Canoe Hire


Nitmiluk Gorge is one of the most picturesque places to canoe in Australia. A canoe trip is a great way to get away from the crowds and experience the splendour of Nitmiluk Gorge (Katherine Gorge). Admire the stunning views, get up close to the wildlife, explore the rocky escarpment riverbanks or cool off at a sandy beach.

Half day, full day and overnight hire options are available.

Canoeing in this environment can be challenging, but rewarding, for those who want to get in touch with nature. Canoes are available when the weather and river level permits. During the months of November to May, canoe hire does not operate due to safety reasons.
