Katherine (including the Katherine Gorge National Park and the Cutta Cutta Caves) An important and major centre surrounded by a range of excellent attractions. Katherine, with a population of over 6 000, is the third largest town in the Northern Territory. Located 340 km from Darwin and 1184 km from Alice Springs, the town is situated on the banks of the Katherine River far enough from the coast to avoid the humid excesses of the tropics (it has a annual rainfall of 960 mm nearly all of which falls between November and March) and yet sufficiently far north not to be surrounded by desert.
Historically Katherine has always been important. To the local Aborigines it was the point where the traditional lands of the Jawoyan (sometimes spelt Djauan), Walpiri, Dagaman and Wardiman met and consequently the river and the nearby gorge were popular meeting places.
