Travel south through tropical country, passing former WWII airstrips. You will make a short stop at the Adelaide River War Cemetery, a site dedicated to those killed in the air raids in Darwin in the 1940's. Continue to Leliyn / Edith Falls, where there is time for a refreshing swim. The paperbark and pandanus fringed natural pool at the base of the falls is safe for swimming throughout most of the year. Alternatively take in the lush, tropical surroundings around the falls.
Enjoy lunch and a two hour scenic cruise through Katherine Gorge located in the Nitmiluk National Park. You have the opportunity to see wildlife and prolific birdlife. The cruise through the gorges takes you past all manner of flora and fauna.
Enjoy a brief tour of Katherine, the hub of the region's cattle and farming industries and the third largest town in the Northern Territory. An evening stop is made at Adelaide River where you may purchase dinner (own expense). You may like to sample the famous 'Barra and Chips' or have your photo taken with the mounted buffalo 'Charlie' who was made famous in the movie Crocodile Dundee, before returning to Darwin.
