Gecko Canoeing and Trekking are a Katherine based company, proud to have lived and operated in the region for over 15 years.

Gecko focuses on their guests’ experience in fine detail. They cater for those who wish to really experience the Top End, to get out there and get up close to nature. Gecko offer group and private trekking and birding tours, or combined tours in Kakadu.


Operating out of Katherine, they tour the famous Jatbula Trail in Nitmiluk National Park and offer some really wild walks – The Dreaming Place Trail from the Manyallaluk Aboriginal Community to Nitmiluk Gorge, and a new five to six day walk from Koolpin Gorge to Twin Falls in Kakadu National Park.

Guests sleep under the stars on comfortable Thermarest mattresses, watch the sun set over the Arnhem Land escarpment and enjoy the company of a small group of friends.

Mick Jerram has been guiding in Kakadu for over 20 years. Mick offers customised multi-day birdwatching guided tours through Kakadu National Park as a qualified Senior Savannah Guide.
