Welcome to Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park
About 30km south of Katherine, turn your back on the searing sun and dip down 15m below terra firma into this mazelike limestone cave system. The 1499-hectare 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. Admission is by guided tour only.
