We arrived in Katherine a little bit on the angry side having picked a puncture on our way here and having to use our spare tyre we had to find a garage to buy a new tyre being late saturday afternoon nowhere was open (being that there was only one garage here) and that it was close the next day on sunday, we were a forced to stay here longer than anticapted, but us being us made the most of the situiation, and saw what Katherine had to offer.
Katherine is slap bang in the middle of the Northern Territory, when we
visted it was very hot and dry so make sure you have plenty of water if you go out for stroll. We were quite surprised to see how much Katherine had to offer and how nice it was. The nautral Mataranka hot springs are a great place to relax and a must do if in Katherine, theres great Barramundi fishing too probably the best in Oz, i managed one afternoon to hook up with a few and land a keeper as well,superb. There`s various National parks around Katherine all worth a look if you have your own transport.
- Pros:Great fishing,hot weather and the hotsprings are top notch
- In a nutshell:Forced to stay, opted to stay longer.
Katherine is probably one if not the best place in the world to catch wild freshwater Barra, the River Flora runs past... more travel advice
