Town of Katherine
The town of Katherine is the fourth largest in the Northern Territory, situated 320 kilometres south-east of Darwin on the beautiful Katherine River.
Katherine is often called the 'Crossroads of the North' as it is located on the junction of the Stuart Highway linking with the north and south and the Victoria Highway to Western Australia.
With a population of close to 10,000 people it is a thriving regional centre to an area as big as the state of Victoria, providing services to communities from the WA border to the Gulf of the NT.
