Butterfly Gorge

A spectacular, and in my opinion, a hidden gem in the Northern Territory – make the effort and explore this gorge

The Douglas River has cut a deep, narrow gorge through a low, sandstone plateau. A cathedral-like atmosphere has been created, with towering, shear, cliff-faces of red and yellow rock, which aeons of wet season rain has polished at their base to a smooth, reflective surface.
