Hi all

Is anyone familiar enough with Katherine to know whether there is anywhere to leave our ute locked away for about a week? It doesn't have to be under cover, but behind a decent fence would be nice.
I've tried a google search for this, but just got non-relevant stuff (motel parking, etc).

Thanks

John

Perhaps a call to the Chamber of Commerce or Traders Association up there (if there is one) may be able to find you a spot behind a factory, or in a lock up somewhere for a few $

Yes, thanks, that was to be my next try if not successful here.

Cheers, John

Hi John

The Visitor Centre may also have some ideas. If you need contact details for Chamber of Commerce, MM me.

I have stayed at the 'Low Level ' caravan park a couple of times now & found them/staff helpful & obliging why not give them a call. (1800 501 984) I have always felt secure there & I would be surprised if you had any trouble leaving your locked vehicle there for a week or so.

As Motherhen has suggested, I would also try the visitor centre. They are pretty switched on there.

The low level caravan park is also worth a try as suggested . I have stayed there many times.

We stayed at Manbulloo Homestead, about 9k out of Katherine in 2010. If you gave them a call maybe they would be able to help

Thanks, Wayne
I did come across Manbulloo, but it seemed too far out of town, unless they had a transport/bus service. Didn't happen to see anything along those lines?

Cheers, John

Can't recall if there was any bus nearby but plenty of cabs in Katherine, but then again I am living in Singapore so would only pay $5.00 for a cab ride that distance. Im sure someone would be heading in to town, depending on numbers you might be able to get a lift
good luck
