Katherine Gorge is a great big gorge that the Katherine river has cut out for itself over millions of years.



Upon arrival, we were greeted by the fact that the registration for the 9:00 AM boat has actually ended at 8:45, and though it was just 8:50, the lady at the counter would have no such thing as giving us a ticket and allowing us to get to the boat on time. The next boat leaves in just a few hours, we can surely got on that one in time!

We didn't really want to spend too much time there, so we went for a helicopter flight instead. It was an act of stubbornness, because we didn't want to admit that we came here for nothing. In reality, the helicopter flight was unnecessary, as the gorge isn't that great of a sight at all, so we were left with a feeling that we flew for nothing. But it was the cheapest helicopter flight we've had, so no worries.



We saw all the waterfalls, the gorge, and how the river had flooded the valley just after the gorge. We also saw the boat, and how far exactly the boat can go, and I can tell you, I wouldn't want to be stuck in that boat for several hours as it got literally nowhere.

After that, we were off to Kakadu!
