To visit the Nitmiluk National Park and cruise the Katherine River, in Australia’s Northern Territory near the town of Katherine, has long been a dream of mine and I was thrilled to at last get to do it as part of the recent trip I had. The gorge is in five parts and we got to do the first two, which are rated as the best. It was a two hour cruise and our skipper was a Spaniard named Manuel who came from Barcelona!! He was great – told us he came out here for a holiday seven years ago, fell totally in love with this river and has been here more or less ever since.
Gorges are a big feature of our Top End and on this river they are impressive indeed.
I was using my Sony DSC R1 in aperture priority with the lens at as wide an angle as possible (24 mm only on my camera)

    Impressive peter, it must have bee a real thrill to be able to take such a trip

  • Crikey, that was quick! Thanks mate and it was indeed a thrill – something I never ever thought I would get to do. I also took some video of this cruise and that really does re-live it for me!

    Chuck some clouds in mate. LOL.

  • LOL – from the photo point of view they would be great, for sure. But a couple of days later we had enough clouds to last us a LONG time!
