Some of this Park's amazing features include spectacular dissected sandstone country, broad valleys and numerous, significant cultural sites.
The deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River is the central attraction of the Park.
Nitmiluk National Park is located in the Top End of Australia's Northern Territory. The Park has two main points of visitor access.
The Park's main entrance is located 30 km northeast of Katherine via a sealed road. Katherine is located 310 km south of Darwin along the Stuart Highway.
Leliyn (Edith Falls) on the western side of the Park, is reached by turning off the Stuart Highway 42km north of Katherine then following a sealed road for a further 19km.
- There are two types of camping in the Park. You can stay at the permanent campgrounds at the Gorge or Leliyn (Edith Falls) where there is plenty of car parking, tent and caravan sites. Powered (Gorge only) and unpowered sites are available. Elsewhere in the Park, bush camping areas have been established for walkers and canoeists who intend to stay overnight. Toilets are provided at some camping areas and a source of water is almost always available nearby. Check at the Nitmiluk Centre first.
- Fires are permitted in the Nitmiluk Tours Camping ground located outside the Nitmiluk Visitors Centre. Fires are not allowed at the camping areas in the gorge system or the Jatbula Trail and campers must supply their own cooking gear and fuel.
