Is there anything to see between Katherine and Kununurra?

Hi Guys,

Heading west tomorrow from Katherine and want to know if we should just head to Lake Argyle or is there any "MUST SEE" places on the way?

Thanks Hado

Nick you are almost right. Gregory's tree is not far from Timber Creek.

Gregory National Park and Keep River National Park are a must see.

There is an escarpment walk not far from Victoria River Roadhouse. If you enjoy walking it is well worth doing.

Life's great and it just keeps getting better

Hado,

You're going to be in tourists heaven, once you get past Willeroo.

Some of the best scenery in Australia. As well as Nick's suggestions, think there's a bit to see/do at Timber Creek as well. Don't forget a trip up to the Top Dam, whether on the way to Kununurra, or a day trip from there.

Reckon Keep River NP is a "must-see"!!!! Magic country, that even has a mini Bungle Bungles, if you know where to look.

Wish I was coming with you. Enjoy,

Bob.

Can't remember most of it.

Hi Hado,

I agree with what others have said and I would like to add another MUST see.
Flora River National Park. It is 36k off the highway with a good dirt road.Collect firewood on the way in. Has proper showers and toilets and a great place to say. Check out the boat ramp down to the Flora river and plenty of walking tracks.
Went in for a look a couple of years ago and finished staying there for a week. Because it is 36k off the road not many people tend to go in there.
If you are a fisherman there are Barra and black bream (sooty grunter) in the river and plenty of the rare pink nosed turtles too.
Well worth a look.
Bullo River station is also well worth it too. Lots to do and be treated like a king.
Awesome fishing, horseriding, helicopter flight out to remote swimming holes, lots of bushwalks etc etc.
Have a great trip.

Hi Hado

That particular stretch is one of my favourites - The Victoria River is something to behold. Take some time to look around at both the Vic River Roadhouse / Caravan Park area and again at Timber Creek. Talk to the locals, very important - usually most helpful in that part of the world.

Aerial inspections are spectacular if the budget can handle it and a trip up the mighty Vic from Timber Creek is on our list next trip - having passed along it many times and admired it from the roadside - always 'punching the breeze'.

Most enjoyable country. Enjoy...


Cheers - Phil
