COVID-19 Information

Everything Katherine App

“Everything Katherine” App – Free advertising service for your business!

COVID-19 has impacted the whole Katherine community over the past couple of weeks and is continuing to have dramatic consequences for local businesses. 

In particular - restaurants, cafes, local shops and trades services will be finding these times hard as they adapt their service delivery to the new restrictions.

To help support the changing ways of doing business, Katherine Town Council is currently developing an "Everything Katherine" App which looks to create one central point for promoting local businesses in the Katherine region as well as services, support and advice.

In accordance with Federal Government restrictions and social distancing measures, Katherine Town Council has made a number of significant changes to our services.

The Katherine Public Library is closed to the public and will be offering services from a remote capacity. Please contact the Library during business hours or follow Katherine Public Library on Facebook to keep up to date with revised services.

Interest on outstanding rate balances and any legal action will be immediately suspended until 30 June 2020 at which time this measure will be reviewed.
