Gecko Canoeing offer fully guided canoe and kayak tours of the Katherine River using high quality equipment. The tours operate in the non gorge section of the river, exploring the secluded reaches of this interesting river system and its many different habitats.

  • 3 Day Katherine River Safari

    Our most popular trip (although our guests say that it ended too quickly). Using top quality equipment and accredited, qualified guides, this trip covers 40 to 55 kilometres of wildlife rich river. Fed by springs and soaks year round, the river winds through rocky banks, paperbark forests, small sparkling rapids and pandanus channels. Comfortable bush camping, great dining, fantastic service and wildlife encounters - it all adds up to being a unique experience. A trip you will never forget.
  • 5 Day Explorer

    A relaxing tour on the lower Katherine River taking in the serenity and intimacy of this stunning river. We spend 2 days floating westward until we meet the flow of the Flora River and enter the famous 'Daly'. An ancient savanna river system home to abundant wildlife and diverse plant life. The 3 days we spend on the Daly include exclusive camping on magnificent sandy beaches.
  • 6 Day Katherine & Daly Explorer

    Just as the name suggests, this 6 day gives us the time to explore, relax and reflect in arguably the best sections of the Katherine and Daly Rivers. Taking in the serenity and intimacy of these stunning locations, small sparkling rapids, shady channels and sandy beaches, joining ancient and diverse systems, 3 days floating westward on the Katherine and 3 days on the Daly affords time to Sit-Listen-Relax. Exclusive camping on magnificent sandy beaches, you will be captivated by every experience!
  • 7 Day Katherine/Flora/Daly Wilderness Immersion

    7 days gives us time to immerse ourselves in the wilderness, away from immediate civilisation and deep in the tropical savanna outback. Taking in the best of both the Katherine and Daly Rivers, we are now able to explore probably the most fascinating and inspiring spring fed river system in the country. The Flora River is a unique emerald coloured system which is deep and clear. View the limestone formations constantly growing across the river on jewelled 'dam like' barrages, and see if you can spot the rare Pig Nosed Turtle in the clear, sandy depths.
  • Jatbula Trail Walk

    The Jatbula Trail is the trip of a lifetime, giving you the opportunity to hike through Nitmiluk National Park from the famous Nitmiluk Gorge to Leliyn / Edith Falls. The Jatbula Trail is an ancient ‘Song Line' used by the Jawoyn people. Overlooking the Seventeen Mile Valley and beyond, the trail features magnificent waterfalls tumbling from high sandstone escarpments, which feed into creeks surrounded by shady monsoon forests. The rock outcrops of the escarpment provide great opportunities to view stunning ancient rock art. You will hike between 10 to 17 kilometres per day, completely dependant of your campsite destinations.
  • Kakadu Twin Falls Walk

    The Jarrangbarnmi / Koolpin Gorge to Twin Falls walk is a remote and beautiful bushwalk through the heart of Southern Kakadu. The walk is restricted, via permits, and you are guaranteed completed exclusivity. The walk follows Koolpin Creek and then crosses a plateau to join up with Twin Falls Creek on top of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Expect to be walking over rock plateaus, through woodlands and to be camping in areas where very few people have camped before.
  • Nitmiluk Dreaming Place Trail Walk

    If you are looking for exclusivity in Nitmiluk National Park, The Dreaming Place Trail is it. Spend a day getting back to ‘culture' as you meet with the people from Manyallaluk ‘The Dreaming Place'. You will be a guest in their home for a day as they take you looking for bush tucker, teach you to throw a spear, play a didgeridoo, light a fire and paint. The next four days will be spent in the company of an NT Immersions guide and a Manyallaluk guide as you hike through the country on a ‘traditional hunting trail' used by the Jawoyn people. It covers highland escarpment and river country, hillsides dotted with dry land eucalypts and amazing gorges cut deep into the rocky landscape.
