Discovery Parks – Katherine

Located 3.

5 hours drive from Darwin and just 6km outside of Katherine on the way to Nitmiluk Gorge is Discovery Parks – Katherine (formerly Shady Lane Tourist Park). The perfect holiday base to experience the beauty and wonder of Katherine from.

Often described as "where the Outback meets the tropics", Katherine leaves you breathless with natural beauty like no other. A region full of gorges, misty waterfalls, thermal springs, and ancient cultures, a trip to Katherine will leave you wanting more.

There’s no shortage of activities in Katherine – cruise, canoe or fly along Nitmiluk Gorge, bushwalk up the Jatbula Trail, visit Cutta Cutta Caves, enjoy a dip in Mataranka’s sandy-bottomed thermal pool, or learn about the local indigenous culture and history of the land.

Discovery Parks – Katherine offers a range of accommodation types from elevated to ground level studio cabins, villas, and large-powered sites for caravanners and campers.
