Cutta Cutta Caves near Katherine

Cutta Cutta Caves

Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park

Directions - From the centre of Katherine, head east along Stuart Highway towards Mataranka for 28km until you see the signs for Cutta Cutta Caves. Turn right and drive another 1km along the access road where you will find a car park at the end. The cave tours do need booking beforehand to avoid disappointment.

The Walk - With just under a week in Katherine to explore what this beautiful and rugged part of Australia has to offer, one day was set aside to take a trip to Mataranka. 93yo Grannam was keen to have a sit in the hot springs that the area is famous for but heading into caves was not an activity she was keen on, so it was decided that Caris, Candy and myself would do that first and meet her and Caris'  uncle in Mataranka a bit later.
