Katherine Region Northern Territory

The Katherine region is a vast area of about 400,000 square km (the size of France) (or twice the size of Victoria)

Every landscape imaginable is here at our beckoning.

Victoria River about 200 km west of Katherine



Umbrawarra Gorge

Situated 24 km off the Stuart Highway just out of Pine Creek Northern Territory it is a great little place to get your experience up in a "Gorge" bushwalk, with shade & water and great rock formations this is a must do.



Umbrawarra Gorge awaits you

Flora River

Situated 135 km west of Katherine Northern Territory along the Victoria Highway the spring fed Flora river is a mass of water falls flowing over naturally created tufa dams. The Flora flows to the Katherine/Daly/Flora river junction and continues on as the Daly River. Great campsite.

canoeing the Flora & Daly rivers

Beswick Falls, Waterhouse River

The spot where all the Barramundi congregate is Beswick Falls near Beswick Aboriginal Community Northern Territory. Also see a few highlights of the Waterhouse River.


Beswick falls off limits without permission of the Community

Nitmiluk Gorge to Edith Falls walk (66 km) (Jatbula trail)

If you really want to get away from it all and experience rarely seen Northern Territory waterfalls, swamplands, arid land, bushland, tropical rainforest pockets, Aboriginal rock art and spring water, you gotta walk this track over 4-5 days.


Bitter springs thermal pool (Mataranka)

Lots of people go to the Mataranka Hot Springs at the southern end of Mataranka, but recently a new hot springs has opened up to the public, and here you may get some solitude and stretch out with a few laps in the crystal clear spring water.

Grove Hill Historic Hotel

Need to wet the whistle and see a remote but easily accessible piece of the Northern Territory history. Just 16 km off the Stuart Highway halfway between Darwin & Katherine.


Douglas Hot Springs / Douglas Daly Tourist Park

Try not to confuse the two, situated about 12 km apart the Douglas Hot Springs has a basic bush camp, where the Douglas Daly Tourist Park (DDTP) has a great caravan/camping/cabin/bar environment with its own unique natural tourist attractions.


Cutta Cutta Caves

30 Km South of Katherine, you can visit these caves as you arrive in Katherine and start your Katherine Region adventure. These cave are Tropical caves, with snakes & bats to view.

Edith Falls

62 Km north of Katherine (42 km up the Stuart Highway & 20 km in)

Many walking trails and several waterfalls along the Edith River.

Great camping sites with nice amenities & Kiosk.


Nathan River Road (Roper Highway Mataranka to Borroloola)

Looking for a slight detour off the bitumen for the day or at your leisure with an overnight camp at a river crossing? Then take the back road to/from Borroloola when doing the trek across the Top End.
