The Team at Nitmiluk is deeply saddened by the loss experienced by so many communities as a result of the Australian bushfires in the last few months.

In addition to the fires, there has been widespread broadcasting of misleading images, maps and information which no doubt exaggerated the geographic spread of the fires.

The reality is that Australia is a big country, very much Open for Business. The Top End – where Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge is located-, together with numerous areas, has not been physically affected by the fires.

For those who need detailed information about the bushfires in Australia, follow this link with detailed info and a map that shows impacted, partially impacted and non-impacted areas. It is being updated daily and serves as an important factual resource for travellers wanting to visit our beautiful country. Useful source of information with the most up to date news from regional websites.

It is now more important than ever to supprt Australian tourism, whether in unaffected regions or those that will recover from bushfires in the months to come.

The best way to support Australia is to keep visiting.
