Katherine River Discovery

Australia 6 Days
Starting From AUD 1,995 / per person
Gouldian Finch
A wonderfully colourful Grass Finch endemic to the Dry Tropics of Australia. Although reported to be on the decline, the Katherine Region is a stronghold for the species and they often see large flocks of up to 200 individuals.
Hooded Parrot
A slender but strikingly beautiful parrot native only to our region. It is found in savanna and open woodland around Katherine and breeds in local termite mounds.
Great-billed Heron
This species is a birding highlight of our river trips. It is an uncommon and elusive wading bird of the heron family, resident from southeast Asia to Papua New Guinea and Northern Australia.
Red Goshawk
Probably the rarest Australian birds of prey found mainly in the savanna woodlands of northern Australia, particularly near the watercourses of our region.
Fresh-water Crocodile
Unlike their much larger Australian relative the saltwater crocodile, freshwater crocodiles are not considered dangerous as man-eaters. ‘Freshies’ are often seen basking riverside on our river trips.
Agile Wallaby
Also known as the River Wallaby, it is a species of wallaby found commonly in northern Australia. Encounters with this animal relaxing under the shade along our rivers are very enjoyable.
Black Wallaroo
A rare species of macropod restricted to the Sandstone areas in the Arnhem Plateau. We are sometimes lucky enough to encounter this robust but elusive Wallaroo on our bushwalks. It classified as near threatened, mostly due to its limited distribution.
Mertens Water Monitor
A large aquatic member of the monitor lizard family found actively foraging in Northern Australia. It is an opportunistic predator of aquatic and riparian habitats but is threatened by the invasive Cane Toad.
Chestnut-quilled Rock-pigeon
A Sandstone endemic of the Arnhem Plateau, Australia. Seen on our walking and scenic tours through Kakadu this species stands like a sentinel of the rugged sandstone formations in the area.
Banded Fruit-dove
A striking pigeon with a white head, neck and upper breast; black back and upper wing grading to grey on rump; black tail with broad grey terminal band; underparts grey, demarcated from white head and neck by broad black band. Seen in the Thickets of the sandstone country.

Gecko Canoeing and Trekking has just commenced the development of a private Conservation reserve, bordering the Nitmiluk National Park in Katherine.

A 2000 acre undeveloped property, undergoing biodiversity mapping and opportunity to protect habitat for nesting bird, reptile and mammal species.

Property name Miniata Conservation Reserve.

    I joined Mick and his crew for the 21st Anniversary trek/canoe from Kakadu to the coast in 2015. It was an extraordinary experience. This region, already well-known to me, opened up under Mick’s guidance and his interpretation of wildlife and ecosystems has stayed with me in the years since. Every day brought new encounters with otherwise hard-to-find birds, reptiles and mammals in areas that no other tour operator visits. Top shelf. Can’t recommend highly enough.
