A must do for this area. The Gorge features remarkable geological formations and the boat tour is awesome. So quiet! Watch out for crocodiles along the way and try the walking tour to the top. The infinity pool is inviting on a hot day.

Hi, Closed on shoes are recommended for the Gorge Tour. This will protect your feet from sticks and rocks. Non slip is good. Cheers
