KATHERINE GORGE INFO
Many visitors to this region of Australia consider Katherine National Park to be a natural wonder of the world! Katherine is made up 292,008 hectares of land and consists of 13 gorges which, over a very long period of time, have been carved out of sandstone rock by torrential summer rains. The area is a living cosmopolitan of bird and marine life and is also home to many fresh water crocodiles! But dont worry, they won't harm you! Photography and bushwalking are among the most popular pursuits of visitors.
Previously known as Katherine Gorge National Park, the Park was handed back to the local Aboriginal people and renamed Nitmiluk, meaning 'Cicada Place'. Since then the park has been jointly managed by the Northern Territory Government and the Jawoyn people in accordance with their traditional laws. Because of this; aboriginal culture within the area is still very strong.

LONELY PLANET - KATHERINE GORGE
The Katherine River, which begins in Arnhem Land, cuts through rugged sandstone country in Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge). Over centuries the river has left a series of gorges in its wake known as Katherine Gorge, and it’s what the hordes are here to see. There’re a variety of ways to experience the park: from inside a canoe to sipping a café latte from the Nitmiluk Centre café balcony. A well-established network of hiking trails lead to the mighty gorge (many with a rewarding swim at the end); the park is excellent for hikers. Swimming in the gorge is safe except when it’s in flood. Usually the only crocodiles around are the freshwater variety, more often seen in the cooler months.
The difference in water levels between the Wet and the Dry is immense. During the Dry the gorge waters are calm, but from November to March they can become a raging torrent, when swimming and canoeing are restricted. Read on
