I was here in 1999, only a year after the huge flood in 1998 (maybe there's been floods since, I don't know). The Katherine River rose so high that someplace you can see marks of the waterlevel up to 2m high on the buildings (They have a marker on Mataranka Homestead too). Some people say there were huge crocodiles cruising down the main street in Katherine!
Actually Katherine River is the first year-long flowing water you come to when you travel north from Alice Springs.
