Welcome to Katherine
Enjoy the best of Australia in Katherine, where the outback meets the tropics. The small town sits on the banks of the Katherine River, which flows from Nitmiluk National Park—home to 13 impressive gorges carved from ancient sandstone cliffs. Explore this adventure playground on foot, by following over 62 miles (100 kilometers) of trails past waterfalls and Aboriginal rock art; by helicopter; or by taking a cruise or paddling a canoe along the Katherine River. Horseback riding and exploring underground caves are also great things to do in Katherine.
