Next stop was Katherine. We booked into a lovely caravan park set among palm trees for the next 3 days. We spent some time at Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) Culture centre where we learned about the Jawoyn tribe, the traditional owners, through dreamtime stories. The 3 gorge trip up the Katherine River was beautiful and again the scenery was magnificent with sandstone walls towering 60 metres high. Saw a couple of crocs along the way too.
We went to the hot springs at Katherine and had a swim, it was fantastic, the water was 32 degrees, the complete extreme to Lake Argyle.
Tomorrow we head to Kakadu National Park.
