Starting from the southern car park at the end of Katherine Gorge Road, this circuit walk explores the escarpment alongside Katherine River via the Baruwei Loop Walk track, visiting Baruwei Lookout along the way. The lookout atop the escarpment provides you great views over the Katherine River and the western end of the same-titled gorge. If you’re staying or living nearby, try to get up early and experience an amazing sunrise here. There are canoe and boat trips if you’d like to explore the river itself. Keep in mind that the track is quite exposed, wear a hat and bring plenty of water to better enjoy the hike. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
