Pack your walking boots and sense of adventure and head west to explore the spectacular gorge country of Gregory National Park. Known as Judbarra to the local indigenous people, it is the second largest park in the Territory. 

Diverse landscapes

Get a feel for the diversity of the Territory's landscapes in the park, which showcases the transition zone between the NT's tropical and semi-arid regions.

Explore lofty gorges, vast escarpment country and amazing sandstone formations. Wander through monsoon rainforest and eucalyptus woodland punctuated with clumps of yellow Spinifex.

The distinctive Boab tree, a sign you're on the way to Western Australia, is particularly striking in this limestone landscape.

Tracks for four-wheel drives

The park has six rugged four-wheel drive tracks to navigate. Tackle the 6 km Limestone Gorge track to see a landscape dominated by limestone formations and boabs. Or embark on the longer 197 km Broadarrow Track that crosses a broad, flat plateau, rugged hilly country and alluvial plains.

Walking trails

If you prefer to explore on foot, the easy Escarpment Walk reveals spectacular views of the Victoria River and the escarpment, and informative signs explain the stories of the Nungali and Wardaman people along the way.

The more challenging Nawulbinbin (Joe Creek) Loop Walk passes Aboriginal paintings and winds up a steep rocky slope to the base of the escarpment wall.

Natural wonders

Gregory's Tree is a giant old boab tree on which explorer Augustus Gregory carved the dates of his party's expedition of the area in July 1856.

Take a dip in the serene waterhole at Limestone Gorge, a postcard-like gorge with interesting craters and dolomite formations.

Settler history

Escape the heat of the day at Bullita Homestead. It is in original condition and tells the story of the first settlers here, the hardships they faced and their chilling end. The stockyards outside are maintained with local lancewood and bloodwood timber.
