Baruwei Loop in Nitmiluk National Park

Baruwei Loop

Nitmiluk National Park

Directions - Located in the southern section of Nitmiluk National Park, from the centre of Katherine head north on Giles Street as it becomes Gorge Road and follow this for 28km. There is only one main road to the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre and it is well signed so you can't miss it. There is plenty of parking but it does fill up during the peak period around July school holidays. The walk starts from outside the Visitor Centre where you will find a large information board detailing the Southern Walks in Nitmiluk. 

The Hike - The southern part of Nitmiluk National Park is where most of the action can be found thanks to a great walking and biking trail network, accommodation, boat tours, helicopter tours, kayak tours and an impressive Visitor Centre equipped with a lovely restaurant. Over the course of our stay in Katherine, I visited here several times to engage in walking activities & boat trips (see further down the page) and really enjoyed my time checking out this part of the world.
