Nitmiluk Visitor Centre upgrade opens

Visitors to Nitmiluk National Park can enjoy the newly refurbished Visitor Centre as part of the Territory Government’s $10 million investment into tourism infrastructure at the majestic Nitmiluk Gorge.

Enhancing the visitor experience, the upgrades include a new, modern kitchen and fresh bathroom facilities which incorporate design elements that resonate with the landscape and tell the story of the Park and the Jawoyn people.

With stage one now complete, stage two has commenced which includes an interpretative display, visitor orientation information and the Welcome to Country experience at the Centre due for completion in early 2020.

The iconic Park is jointly managed with the Jawoyn people and this project is employing local contractors and being coordinated in close consultation with the Nitmiluk Board of Management.

Visitors will now have earlier access to the Park after the Wet Season as this infrastructure investment has delivered upgrades to the first gorge cross-over Wet Season path, a new Katherine River crossing and an upgraded 17 Mile Valley track to support Nitmiluk Tours’ new Biddlecombe Cascades glamping experience.

The tender to construct a new jetty in the gorge was awarded in early July 2019 and will be completed by the Wet Season.
