Fodor's Expert Review Cicada Lodge

Gorge Rd.

Each of the stylish air-conditioned rooms at Cicada Lodge has a private balcony overlooking Katherine Gorge, is decorated with Aboriginal artwork, and comes with breakfast as well as complimentary canapés and cocktails at sunset. Enjoy fine dining in the restaurant, relax by the small-yet-charming private pool, or have the staff arrange unique adventures in the Gorge next door, such as a helicopter ride to a remote waterhole or a guided rock art tour with a local Jawoyn guide (additional charges apply).

  • complimentary drinks and snacks each evening

CONS
