Victoria River, NT

Known as Victoria River, Victoria River Crossing and the Victoria River Inn, this tiny settlement is located on the Victoria Highway 194 kilometres west of Katherine. The settlement itself is little more than a roadhouse and campground, but the scenery along the highway as it winds past immense escarpments split by the might Victoria River ranks as some of the most stunning in the Territory. The area’s colourful scenery features grassy plains, boab trees and majestic gorges carved out of sandstone escarpments.
