Information

The Keep River NP is located 468 km west of Katherine on the Victoria Highway, along the Northern Territory/Western Australia border, Keep River National Park is noted for its striking landforms. The Park entrance is 3 km east of the NT/WA border. Formed gravel roads suitable for 2WD vehicles lead to the main attractions. Other tracks within the Park require 4WD. During the wet season roads may be closed due to flooding. Best time to visit the Park is from May through to the end of August, when temperatures can range from 35 degrees during the day, down to 10 degrees overnight.

There are trails for bush walking, photography, and the chance to see some amazing geological features. Past evidence of volcanic activity, massive marine deposits and glaciation are visible in the rocks and landforms of this region. You can explore the rugged and dissected terrain of sandstone formations, and erosion by the Keep River has formed the shallow sandstone Keep River Gorge (Jinumum Walk). A short walk along the floor of the Gorge provides an opportunity to view an Aboriginal Art site.

Camping areas are at Gurrandalng, (located 18km from the Park entrance) and Jarnem, (located 31km from the Park entrance). Camping facilities include tables, barbecues and pit toilets. Drinking water is available at two sites within the Park. Generators are only permitted at the Gurrandalng camp ground (restrictions apply).
