Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park
Formed millions of years ago the Cutta Cutta Caves system is home to a variety of native wildlife and is rich in Indigenous culture and modern European history. Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park is located 27km south of Katherine and is easily accessible from the Stuart Highway. The park covers 1499 hectares of limestone landscape, and is home to five species of bats, including the rare Ghost and Horseshoe bats. About 170 species of birds have been recorded within the park, including the Hooded Parrot and the endangered Gouldian Finch. Tropical cave systems like those in Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park are limited in Australia and are therefore of scientific and conservation interest and are the primary season the area has been declared an official Nature Park. In addition to the Caves system, a Visitor Centre and kiosk, the park offers a Tropical Woodland walk, with information for visitors about the local flora and fauna. 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. The Cutta Cutta Caves tour is typically open from April until the end of October, depending on weather conditions.

Excellent cultural visit to the underground caves. Knowledgable tour guide with interesting information disseminated. Entertaining at times however seems overpriced for large groups going through to a small portion of the cave only. Definitely would recommend.

Took a quick stop at the Cutta Cutta Caves just below Katherine. Our guide Jaz was very knowledgeable & made it interesting. Worth seeing. Can’t upload any photos for some reason.
