Tufa dams on the Flora River
The Flora River.

Giwining / Flora River Nature Park

Giwining / Flora River Nature Park protects 25 kilometres of the Flora River.

This waterway is fringed with dense riverine vegetation and dotted with deep pools, and an adjacent area of floodplain and savanna woodland - a rich wildlife habitat.

Visit Giwining / Flora River Nature Park for short walks, camping or relaxing along this perennial spring-fed watercourse. Visit the popular and beautiful Kathleen Falls and Djarrung Falls, and see the 'tufa' formations created by calcium carbonate precipitating out of the springwater. These have grown together over time to create dams picturesquely spanning the Flora River.

The Park is home to a variety of fish including barramundi, bream, catfish and grunters. Since both the Freshwater and Saltwater Crocodiles are known to inhabit the river, swimming, canoeing and small boats are not permitted. Camp at the well-equipped Lorrngorl Campground, where picnic facilities, toilets, showers and fire pits are provided. Campsite bookings are essential and must be made online before you visit.

To access the Park, follow the Victoria Highway west from Katherine for 86 km and then follow the access road (suitable for 2WD vehicles during the dry season from April to October) for another 46 km to the Park entrance. The Park may become inaccessible at times after heavy rain.
