NT Learning Adventures


Kakadu and Katherine

Kakadu and Katherine, both just a 3 hour drive from Darwin, offer some immersive culture programs, important sustainability programs and loads of hands on activities that will keep the students entertained while they learn. Kakadu National Park, a World Heritage asset, covers almost 20,000 square kilometres – that’s almost half the size of Switzerland. Ranger guided activities are available through Kakadu National Park especially for schools, Cruises on Yellow Water or Guluyambi are available and special packages can be arranged for school groups. There are some excellent educational resources based around the documentary ‘Kakadu’ – it’s a fantastic introduction to the park, and you never know – you may even get to meet some of the stars!
Katherine is situated just south of Kakadu, and one of its greatest attributes is the assortment of national parks and reserves that cater to the needs of all groups. From the rugged and remote Limmen National Park in the east, through the vast cultural landscape of Nitmiluk and the deep immersion into history of Gregory National Park in the west.
Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) is the main attraction in the Katherine region, and is jointly managed by the Jawoyn people and the NT Parks and Wildlife commission. The rugged sandstone cliffs and deep gorges cut by the Katherine River present opportunities for cruises, camping, hiking, swimming and canoeing with Nitmiluk Tours. The Katherine and Kakadu region really encapsulates sustainability in national parks, history through culture, mining and cattle stations, and opportunities for a deeper cultural immersion experience.
