Katherine Region

Katherine Region - Northern Territory

The Katherine region is a wonderful mix of lifestyle diversity, lush green forest, red desert and a pioneering past. The surrounding areas of Katherine stretch from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the West Australian Border and beholds a beauty that has to be explored to appreciate these natural wonders thriving in harsh conditions. Katherine is the hub of the outback with attractions to interest all travellers from gorges and hot springs to caves and galleries.

Visit the only original mining town of Pine Creek a reminder of the dizzy 1870's gold rush era with many of the original heritage bush buildings still standing. Poach yourself in the healing waters of the therapeutic Mataranka Springs or maybe Bitter Springs, take your pick or do both. Halfway between Darwin and Katherine, throw a line in the famous Daly River or simply take a dip in the hot springs. The Daly Waters Pub, 265 kilometres south of Katherine, will be one of the standouts for travellers with a penchant for some quirky fun and frivolity in this unforgettable outback watering hole.

When you visit Katherine and its surrounds be sure to allow enough time to stop and take it all in, it really is a unique and diverse region with loads to offer travellers with a desire for an outback experience with a touch of civilisation.
