The Famous Nitmiluk National Park is Katherine’s star attraction covering an awesome 3,000 km of magnificent country. The Katherine River flows through 13 separate gorges that carve their way through the Arnhem Plateau. You can canoe & swim between sheer cliffs to the sandy freshwater beaches of the main gorges, and view ancient Aboriginal rock paintings high on the rock faces. Waterfalls and rock pools are found along over 100 km of walking tracks, beginning at the park’s visitor centre.
