Umbrawarra Gorge Nature Park

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The Umbrawarra Gorge Nature Park, located about 115 kilometres from Katherine, protects a beautiful isolated gorge with steep red cliffs and a creek that meanders through the gorge in the early to mid dry season.

A walking track winds alongside the creek to a large pool with a small sandy beach and the rest of the gorge can only be reached by wading, swimming and rock hopping.

The Wagiman Aboriginal people are the traditional owners of the land, and ancient Aboriginal art adorns the gorge walls. The car park near the entrance of the gorge was the site of a tin mine in the early 1900s.

Permits must be obtained for rock climbing and abseiling. No water is available, so please bring your own supplies and camping fees apply. Please note that during the tropical season, especially after rain, the road may be closed.
