About the Katherine Region
Katherine is ideally located on the Stuart Highway, just 3 hours south of Darwin. Katherine is known as the crossroads of the north. It is the pivot point for travellers making their way north-south between Darwin, NT and Adelaide in South Australia, or east-west along the Savannah Way ‘Australia’s Adventure Drive‘ from Cairns in Queensland to Broome in Western Australia.

The Katherine region is adventure territory, stretching from Dunmarra in the south, to the Daly River in the north. from east to west we embrace the Queensland and Western Australian boarders and cover a total of 480,000 square kilometres.
