Timber Creek Tourism & Travel
Timber Creek Australia
Timber Creek, population 556, is an outback Territory town 285 kilometres, 178.1 miles, southwest of Katherine. It lies on the Victoria Highway, which is the main route connecting Australias Top End and the Kimberley region. The location of Timber Creek township makes it an excellent stopover point and base to explore the Gregory National Park.
Gregory National Park
There are two sections to the Gregory National Park. The Bullita Sector lies to the west of the Wanimiyn and Ngaliwurru/Nungali Aboriginal Land Trusts. The Victoria River Sector lies to the east of the same Trust area.
Located in the south of the Bullita section, domite blocks and huge cliffs create the stunning Limestone Gorge - also good for fishing.
Jasper Gorge with its permanent waterhole is located 48 kilometres, 30 miles, southwest of Timber Creek, just south of the Aboriginal Land Trust area.
Venture, if you dare, into the crocodile infested waters of the Victoria River. Exciting boat rides are available on the river - get ready for close-up views of the crocodiles.
In terms of history, both Aboriginal significant sites and evidence of early European pastoralists can be found.
Gregory National Park is a remote area with rough terrain and features tropical and semi-arid plant life, spectacular range and gorge scenery. It is a very exciting park to explore if you have a 4WD but if not you can still see Limestone Gorge.
