Victoria River

Known as Victoria River, Victoria River Crossing and the Victoria River Roadhouse, this tiny settlement is located on the Victoria Highway 194km west of Katherine.

The settlement itself is little more than a roadhouse and campground, but the scenery along the highway as it winds past immense escarpments split by the mighty Victoria River ranks as some of the most stunning in the Territory. The roadhouse has a small shop and an accommodation complex on the banks of the Victoria River with shady camp sites and amenities.

Gregory National Park protects the area’s colourful scenery featuring grassy plains, boab trees and majestic gorges carved out of sandstone escarpments. The Victoria River is renowned for great fishing and abundant birdlife.
