Pat's Lookout in Nitmiluk National Park

Jedda's Rock via Windolf Walk

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 - With many hike options to choose from in the southern section of Nitmiluk National Park, I had one last location I really wanted to check out before our time in Katherine came to an end. Having completed Butterfly Gorge, one of the other longer day walks, I had my gaze set upon the nearby Pat's Lookout, Southern Rockhole and Jedda's Rock for my last day hike in the area. Getting up early to avoid the heat, I ventured along the road towards Nitmiluk for the final time and soaked in what is a pleasant drive in the pre-dawn light.
