Delve 15 metres below the surface to discover the limestone caves formed millions of years ago that are still home to a variety of native wildlife.

Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park is located 30 kilometres south of Katherine and covers 1,499 hectares of karst limestone landscape, found in only a few locations in northern Australia. Formed millions of years ago and still growing today, these caves are found about 15 metres below the surface.

Cutta Cutta Caves are home to a variety of native wildlife, including the brown tree snake and the rare orange horseshoe bat. The park is open year-round, but the caves are occasionally closed due to seasonal conditions.

The Tropical Woodland walk begins near the carpark and enables visitors to experience the open tropical woodland. Allow 10 to 20 minutes to complete the walk.

Opening times:

  • Daily from 8.30am to 4.30pm. Closed periodically between December and April due to flooding.
