Day 7 - Katherine / Kakadu

Today is our last full day in Katherine and our last night here. Tomorrow we will head up to Darwin. This morning we had booked a Two Gorge tour of the Katherine Gorge (now called Nitmiluk Gorge). This tour took just over two hours to traverse two gorges On unsinkable barges (I hope they are unsinkable as there are crocodiles under the boat). We had to walk over from one Gorge to the other to get over the natural rock dams to get to the second barge (yes we had to get on two barges both on the way up and way back). The scenery was spectacular and we spotted 4 crocodiles. We were told by the guide they were freshwater species and therefore we would not be killed by them but he warned us not to enter the water. I get it. No swimming for me.

We did not plan anything for the afternoon and it was good to just laze around in 33 degree heat and to just do nothing. We had dinner booked at the local campground restaurant for 6.30pm and this was a great end to this leg of the trip.
