A short 10 minute walk from our campsite were the beautiful Katherine Hot Springs.

The springs are clear & clean water which is a nice break from the long drive. Take notice of the local warning of crocodiles but not over alarmed a tourists over reactions. The local authorities are quick to alert you is a croc has been sited.

I'm not sure if this is overlooked by most but we spent a lengthy time swimming in the warm and crystal clear waters of the springs.

Known by locals for its crystal clear warm water, and scenery, the hot springs is a relaxing therapeutic spot. Great picnic place. Currently being upgraded.
