Tales of the Outback…Nitmiluk

Let us take you on a journey through the Australian Outback to explore the myths and legends surrounding some of the country‘s most mesmerising sights…

Nitmiluk

You may not have heard of Nitmiluk, but you will have probably heard of Katherine Gorge – a dramatic collection of thirteen gorges, waterfalls and rapids carved by the Katherine River, which form the central attraction of Nitmiluk National Park. Nitmiluk means ‘place of the cicada dreaming’ and this area is said to have great ceremonial significance to the Jawoyn – the local Aboriginal people. Again, this area is covered in caves and ancient rock art sites depicting the abundance of wildlife and ancestral spirits that dwell here. If you’re lucky, you will probably spot many of this wildlife for real when you enter the park as its entrance is ‘guarded’ by hundreds of fruit bats hanging from the trees above as well as numerous rock wallabies. The best time to visit is during the lead up to the Wet Season where the landscape comes alive with the sounds of nature.
