Katherine is a serene town located just outside the borders of the Nitmiluk National Park, which is owned by the indigenous Jawoyn Aboriginal people and jointly managed with the local Parks and Wildlife Commission. Tourists use Katharine as a base from which to explore the Edith Falls, scenic Jatbula Trail and the Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park. Alternatively, visit the Top Didj Cultural Experience to take in authentic Aboriginal art and culture, relax in the crystal clear Katherine Hot Springs, or take a walk along the river bed on a path that leads to Katherine Low level Nature Reserve.
