Umbrawarra Gorge Nature Park

The Umbrawarra Gorge Nature Park protects a beautiful isolated gorge with steep red cliffs and a creek that meanders through it in the early to mid dry season.

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

The park is located about 115 kilometres from Katherine, and is best accessed during the dry season (May–September) when the river level has dropped.

The Wagiman Aboriginal people are the traditional owners of this area, 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.

No water is available, so please bring your own supplies. Camping fees apply. Please note that during the tropical season, especially after rain, the road may be closed.
