Northern Territory

We are planning details for a trip to NT.
Info required on how long take to travel comfortably from Katherine to Nhulunbuy.
Also have seen details of a N.P I think near NT QLD border area that is quite unique and spectacular. I understand it is similar to canyon country in USA Anyone have thoughts on this

Tuck, if you read the post below, it details a trip thru Arnhem Land that may help you.

Two days. There are a number of gravel pits along the way to overnight camp in. Google earth can give you the coordinates if you want them before you leave. There are numerous other spots.
What other people think of me is none of my business.

The locals usually do it in one day, but they are not normally loaded like a visitor, besides they have seen the scenery before.

I don't know the USA canyon country but you may be alluding to Lawn Hill NP - it is indeed a wonderful place - canoeing, scenery, fish, fossils, geology and relaxation..... hard to beat.

Hi Truck,
The NP you are thinking of is Lawn Hill and would be a must see. As well as the Lost city's both western and southern in the Limmen NP.
Cheers Andy

Tuck,
I think you are talking about the Lost City near the NT/QLD border. From Barkly Homestead head north on the Tablelands Highway to the junction of the Carpentaria Highway. This is where Heartbreak Hotel is situated at Cape Crawford. From here you can do flights over the Lost City formations. Much of the area is restricted access, but things seem to change from year to year. Some folk say you can drive in, but to our knowledge you would be breaking the law. There is another smaller version to the north west of there, but it depends which way you are coming from. The flight is worth doing. Hope this helps. Cheers, John

The lost city south of Cape Crawford is only accessed but helicopter but the Western Lost city and southern lost city can be accessed by 4x4. You need to get a key from the ranger at Nathan River for the western lost city and is a full day in and out as their is no camping allowed there.Southern lost city is only 4klm from the savannah way and has camping for small rigs only. Both have walking tracks taking you through them.

Caranbirini Conservation Park between Cape Crawford and Borroloola , is I believe very similar to the "Lost City" formations and not very far off the main road...a great walk through the rock formations and a lagoon with a "hide" to watch the water birds. No camping there but a 2-3 hr stop is all you need to see it all.

The photo is the southern lost city in the Limmen NP. But all these rock formation are formed in the same way. It's just some are more prominent than others and have different colours. Lorella Springs have a similar range on the western boundary and forms the same as the southern lost city. They are all worth a look.

There is a cleared area/ex metal dump to the west of Caranbirrini very close to the entry point where you can camp. It's on the southern side of the road.

cheers
