Victoria River to Katherine

There was no rush to get away this morning as we only had about 200 kms to go to Katherine, so after breakfast we walked down to the Victoria River Bridge for a few photos. Victoria River is located on the edge of the Gregory National Park which extends from Timber Creek to Victoria River. The river winds its way through the Victoria River Gorge with high cliffs and rugged country which attracts many visitors to the National Park. About half way to Katherine we had to get off the road for a wide load going the other way.

We arrived at Katherine shortly after lunch and set up on a large grassy sight for 3 nights. While we had a walk around the caravan park Di ran into an ex work colleague - small world.
