Situated on the doorstep of the Gregory National Park in the Katherine region, the township of Timber Creek is a traveller's oasis. Timber Creek, 285 kilometres west of Katherine, is the region's main centre and is home to about 70 people. This friendly Northern Territory town features several attractions that preserve its rich pastoral and exploration heritage.
Timber Creek is the traditional land of the Ngaliwurra Aboriginal people, who provided early European settlers with valuable bush knowledge and acted as guides for the local police. A police station was first established in Timber Creek in 1898. Initially just a hut and a goat yard, the dwellings were upgraded to iron and steel in 1908 and this structure has been reopened as the Timber Creek Police Station Museum.
Fishing is one of Timber Creek's biggest drawcards. The beautiful Victoria River, running through deep valleys and gorges, is one of the Northern Territory's most scenic places to catch barramundi. Gregory National Park is Timber Creek's backyard. Covering an area of approximately 13,000 square kilometres, the Park is home to red-rimmed escarpment ranges, plunging gorges and ancient boab trees.
