"The Escarpment" @ The Gorge

20 sites · RVs, Tents400 acres · Lansdowne, NT
Ereluk - Our personal name sake nestled between Jodetluk and Nitmiluk - Private, secluded, “Primitive Camp Sites” nestled around a 400 acre property in a unique Australian bush setting. Firstly named aptly “The Escarpment” for the truly beautiful ridge that runs kilometers along the block boundary, providing a perfect back drop to individual camp sites. Purpose built van pads spaced far enough apart to offer privacy and peace have been positioned with the Caravan in mind. Whilst waiting for the wet & the long grass to let us onto the flats, we have set up an initial 10 sites that are all year round accessible. These are a bit closer together as will be described in the description. Also a bit cheaper so happy campers all round! Ereluk - The true experience! Over The Creek - some of the best camping sites along the base of the escarpment are just waiting to be found. Yearly we fix up after the wet giving 4WD access to these hidden gems. A little more expensive but worth the extra for the views alone. On The Creek - Our most sort after sites! We have 3 sites only that are situated on the best part of the creek this block has to offer. Deep holes that are great for a swim with water so clear we drink it. Truly amazing and worth the extra $ for a sweet location. It is mostly 4WD access and all vans must be self-contained as no amenities, water or power are available at these sites. Those looking for a bush experience with plenty of activities to do during the day will not be disappointed.

A beautiful private 100-acre property only 15 minutes from stunning Edith Falls and 30km from Katherine Town. The property has some cows and I also have a very cute 1 year old lab/golden retriever dog - so plenty of cuteness around for the kids! All animals are in the paddocks with a fence around it, so you don’t have to worry about a cow next to your caravan in the morning 🐮 Dogs are very welcome as well. There is a special dog area that is fenced off where they can walk around all day if you want to go out exploring or at night time and there is 6 large dog cages in the dog run as well for if there are multiple campers with dogs that want to use the dog area at the same time. I have three caravan sites available on a couple of acres gravelled area to make sure that guests are not right next to each other. I love meeting new people and always happy to share some great Katherine tips with you.

Camping in Northern Territory guide

Overview

Vast desert landscapes, balmy tropical heat, and some of Australia’s most dramatic terrain—the Northern Territory is a region to be savoured. Give yourself ample time to explore the national parks’ ancient Aboriginal rock art; hike through sweeping gorges; or set out on an epic road trip all the way to the Red Centre. Here, each season offers its own appeal. Dry season (June through Sept) is the best time to hike, surf, or camp out in the wilderness, while in wet season (November through April), wildlife cruises and waterfalls are at their most impressive.

Where to go

Darwin

Darwin is the gateway to the Litchfield and Mary River national parks, where you can pitch a tent along the riverside, spot wildlife on a bushwalk, then cool off in a natural swimming hole. For the best of both worlds, stop at one of the city’s beachfront campsites and explore the parks on a day trip.

Kakadu

Cruise among crocs, uncover Aboriginal rock art sites, and swim in natural waterholes at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Bush campgrounds provide an opportunity to get back to nature, while the park has over 30 marked rainforest hiking trails.

Alice Springs

Venture to Alice Springs, Australia’s Red Centre, to hike around King’s Canyon, hear Dreamtime stories of Aboriginal heritage, and lose yourself in the endless desert landscapes. Adventurers can roll out a swag beneath the desert stars and wake early to watch the sunrise over Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Katherine

South of Darwin, the Katherine River is flanked by rocky gorges and savannah grasslands where you can hike, camp, or kayak away from crowds. In Nitmiluk National Park, you can also soak in natural thermal springs, visit ancient caves, or swim at Edith Falls.

Arnhem Land

Campers venturing to the northernmost corner of Arnhem Land are rewarded with deserted beaches, rocky promontories, and hidden waterfalls. You need a permit to visit the traditional lands of the Yolngu people and a four-wheel drive is best for getting around, but it’s worth the effort to discover one of Australia’s most undeveloped pockets of wilderness.
