Driving Directions

Travel to waypoint on 86km south-west of Katherine on the Victoria Highway. Turn north at waypoint and continue for 36km on dirt road.

Flora River Nature Park is located 122 km south-west of Katherine. The park protects 25 km of the Flora River and an adjacent area of floodplain and savannah woodland.
The Wardaman people have a rich cultural history. Stories, ceremonies and songs linking the ten clans are performed along a singing trail which traverses the Park. Senior custodians conduct ceremonies in and around the Park's sacred sites.

Flora River Nature Park protects two major vegetation communities: open woodland, which consists of widely spaced trees with a grassy understory, and the riverine forest lining the river banks and islands.

Extensive stands of the palm, Livistonia rigida, a plant with limited distribution, are found in the riverine forest along with river pandanus and melaleucas.

The pig-nosed turtle, Carettochelys insculpta, which was once thought to occur only in Papua New Guinea, has been recorded within the Park. It is only found in a few localities in the Northern Territory. The Park also protects a variety of fish including barramundi, bream, catfish and grunters. Both freshwater, Crocodylus johnstonii, and estuarine (saltwater) crocodiles, Crocodylus porosus, are known to inhabit the river.
