We went out to Katherine Gorge around 9.00a.m. We climbed a fairly steep grade to the first lookout which was of the first gorge and the view was great. Then we walked the rest of the downhill loop back to the tourist centre. This part was through bush on a dirt road track and easy walking. The walk took an hour and was well worth it. We were glad we did the walk before the cruise because of the heat. There were people swimming in the gorge at the main area and having a lot of fun. We went on the Two Gorge boat cruise (two hours) at 11.00 a.m. which was spectacular. Better to do than the one hour trip because you get out and walk over rocks, past rock art to nexxt gorge where you get in another boat. The boat driver was funny, very knowledgable and helpful. There was a restaurant but they were expecting a huge busload so we avoided it.
