Sun 19th – Wow it’s amazing, not in the size of Katherine Gorge but the colours are vibrant and it’s so peaceful.
We paddled up the whole gorge from the national park. It’s an easy paddle up to Indarri Falls, 3 km return. Amazing green water, red cliffs and plenty or vegetation. We saw 2 fresh water crocs along this section, one was pretty big.
Lots of fish in the water, not a lot of birdlife at the time we did it. But there was a lot of people paddling. So maybe too many people.
Then we lifted the Kayak out of the water and walked it around the the top gorge and paddled up the a further 1300m to the end where a series of channels run into the gorge. Lots of palms and other trees in the top section.
Once back at the Indarri Falls we had a swim, it was really lovely, not too cold, lots of fun.
Then back to the start all up 6km paddle, really relaxing and tranquil on the water, well worth doing. A lot easier than walking it.
