Falls in the Northern Territory

Today I'm going to take you through the golden town of Katherine. You can find this prosperous town 200 miles southeast of Darwin. It's the fourth biggest settlement in the Northern Territory with an urban population of 5,849 since 2006.

Located in a promising grazing and soon-to-be agricultural country, the town's main economy thrives around gold. Sadly enough, this has lessened because the great mine, Mount Todd has been closed. Aside from this, the town also boasts lots of churches, parks, clubs and a showground.

Top Attractions Within Katherine City

Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park. Start off by driving 30 kilometers south of Katherine to Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park. The park sweeps across 1,500 hectare of karst limestone landscape and houses caves formed millions of years ago and still growing as we speak.

The park is open all year, showcasing its rich collection of native wildlife. Brown tree snakes, orange horseshoe bats. Go on a self-guided tour to see all these interesting animals for yourself. The caves, on the other hand, have to be closed on occasion according to the season.
 
17 Mile Falls. Now, here's an activity that's sure to fill up your days. I'm not kidding, trekking along the Jatbula Trail to reach the astounding 17 Mile Falls takes four to five days to complete. That 58 kilometre walk from Nitmiluk to Edith Falls is actually worth it, though, when you come across the majesty that is the 17 Mile Falls. After all the walking, stand back and just let this permanent water source take your breath away.

Edith Falls is located in Nitmiluk National Park and is represented by a series of waterfalls. These falls are part of the Edith river and tourists can climb up to the top as to get a better view of the waterfall. Park your car hire and enjoy the view that is spectacular and you can see the whole surroundings.
 
Flora River Nature Park. For your last leg, driving 135 kilometers south west of Katherine will take you to Flora River Nature Park. It's quite a quaint and beautiful getaway with its dense riverine vegetation and deep pools scattered here and there. The waterway gives rise for many exciting activities such as canoeing and boating. On the ground you can also have the option of taking short walks, or camping out to make the most of the special natural features.

The Katherine Gorge is probably the best known attraction to visit here in Katherine. The ancient Aboriginals left as heritage many vivid paintings that can still be found on the rocks. The large quantity of precipitations erased most of these drawings, but some of them remained intact and tourists can still see them today.

Nitmiluk National Park is one of the most relaxing parks in Katherine City. Be sure to visit the park that houses a series of gorges that can be explored either by foot or by canoe. During the dry season the gorges become disjointed, as the level of the river drops. It is a unique experience that is both memorable and stunning.

Katherine City Hot Springs is a great place where you can enjoy an outdoor picnic, a traditional barbecue or just a simple walk. Leave your car hire in the Hot Springs that also provide swimming facilities and a monsoon forest, where you can sit back and have a relaxing afternoon.

And with such a relaxing finish to your Katherine itinerary, you can come home refreshed and mellowed out. With your head cleared out like that, it'll be easier to hear yourself think. So c'mon! What are you waiting for? De-stress and come to Katherine.

In terms of accommodation, there is a lot to choose from, from hotels, motels, B&Bs and camping sites. It is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or a short holiday. Have a car hire ready and experience real vacation in Katherine.

I know Katherine has done me good. It should with you too.
