Welcome...

Katherine has a fascinating history. Ancient Aboriginal culture blends with more recent European settlement, combining to make this town and surrounding region the special place that it is today. Situated on the Katherine River, 320kms southeast of Darwin, Katherine is known as the place

“where the outback meets the tropics”

and is the central hub of the Savannah Way, which stretches from Cairns in Queensland, right across to Broome, W.A. The traditional lands of the Jawoyn, Dagoman & Wardaman Aboriginal peoples converge here, a meeting place for the indigenous people for thousands of years, where ancient art and sacred sites abound.
