Limmen National Park
Limmen Nation Park, Norther Territory
The Park is situated in the Gulf region, about 275 km south-east of Katherine and 65 km from Borroloola. If you are not on a tour, you will need to be fully self-reliant in this remote area.
South-easterly breezes keep temperatures comfortable between April and August, however from September to January they can reach the 40’s. Most of the 800 mm average rain falls between December and April, causing flooding and road closures throughout the region.
Featuring spectacular sandstone formations, numerous river systems and associated wetlands, it is also steeped in culture and history. People come to enjoy the fishing and bird life.
This is not the place to be for a swim. The rivers and creeks are inhabitated by Saltwater Crocodiles, so do not swim in any of the rivers or creeks in Limmen National Park.
The Southern Lost City is 35 km south of the Nathan River Ranger Station. At the end of the 4 km 4WD track you can enjoy a 2.5 km walk among the rock formations. There is another 4WD track if you have high clearance, the 28km Western Lost City starts near the Ranger Station.
