Ngukurr: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Limmen National Park


The Gulf region is known for its rivers and this is reflected in the drive through Limmen National Park, which crosses four major rivers and follows a fifth, the Roper River, for a while. It is a paradise for anglers and birdwatchers, and is always popular among anglers. Limmen has only recently become a sightseeing destination. A diversity of landscapes makes the drive through the park varied and interesting. Just along the main road you will experience woodlands, rivers, floodplains and billabongs, while short detours reward visitors with more.

Butterfly Springs, the only place in the park you can safely swim, is just five kilometres off the Nathan River Road and has a campground set among shady trees. Southern Lost City can be experienced via a two kilometre loop walk among its spectacular leaning sandstone spires and is only four kilometres off the main road. The Western Lost City is reached via a 28 kilometre four-wheel drive track, you will need a key from the Nathan River Ranger Station to get through the gate. Make sure you have plenty of fuel as there is no fuel stop between Roper Bar and Cape Crawford (a distance of 338 kilometres).

Warloch Ponds Road Bridge


The site consists of a single-lane steel and concrete structure spanning Elsey Creek on an old section of the Old Stuart Highway 18km south of Mataranka near the historic Elsey Cemetery and the Elsey Homestead Memorial Cairn.

The Warloch Ponds Bridge is the longest one-lane road bridge of its type in the Northern Territory and is a good example of World War II heavy engineering. It reflects technical accomplishment and achievement particularly in view of its remote location.

The bridge, one of seven of its type en-route to Darwin, has historic and engineering significance as a structure directly associated with development of the Stuart Highway, the military build-up in the Northern Territory and military control of the Darwin region during World War II. The bridge has also acquired historic significance through its association with road transport in the post war development of the Darwin and Katherine regions.
