Things to see and do with a rental car in Katherine

If you're out in the NT, Katherine is sure to be on your list of places to visit! That's probably because of Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) - famous as a must see destination in Australia for walkers, hikers and campers. It's best to visit in the dry season (May-October) when you can enjoy a swim or even a canoe whilst marvelling at the plunging waterfalls above.

Just be sure not to try swimming in the wet season unless you're a fan of saltwater crocodiles. If you happen to be in the area at this time, you can still soak in the beauty of the natural gorge and well, you might just spot one of those crocs!

As with other destinations in the NT, Katherine has a rich Indigenous heritage that you can embrace at the many galleries exhibiting Indigenous art and culture in Katherine city. Take your time strolling through each as every piece of art tells a different story of country.
