Where is it?
244km south-east of Darwin or 30km from Katherine, in Nitmiluk National Park
How to see it for yourself?
Gorge Road into the Park is all bitumen and ends at Nitmiluk National Park Visitor Centre, a great starting point for hiking. Take the 24km return walking trail that commences at the centre. Smitt Rock is in Gorge Four of the 13 sandstone gorges and you can camp overnight here.
Why I love it
“The NT outback is one of the best places in the world to see the night sky. With little light pollution, Australia’s Southern Cross and Milky Way are seen clearly. Grab a swag, get cosy and watch one of the best lightshows in the world.” – Nelson Hall, Tourism NT
