Welcome to Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park
About 30km southeast of Katherine, turn your back on the searing sun and join a guided tour 15m below the earth into this mazelike limestone cave system. The 15-sq-km Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park has a unique ecology and you'll be sharing the space with brown tree snakes and pythons, plus the endangered ghost bats and orange horseshoe bats that they feed on. Cutta Cutta is a Jawoyn name meaning 'many stars'; it was taboo for Aboriginal people to enter the cave, which they believed was where the stars were kept during the day. The park closes from December to April.
