Welcome to Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park
Spectacular Katherine Gorge forms the backbone of the 2920-sq-km Nitmiluk National Park, about 30km from Katherine. A series of 13 deep sandstone gorges have been carved by the Katherine River on its journey from Arnhem Land to the Timor Sea. It's a hauntingly beautiful place − although it can get crowded in peak season − and a must-do from Katherine. In the Dry the tranquil river is perfect for a paddle, but in the Wet the deep still waters and dividing rapids are engulfed by an awesome torrent that churns through the gorge.
