What’s it like liv­ing in Katherine?

With a pop­u­la­tion of around 11,000, Kather­ine is a mod­ern, thriv­ing region­al cen­tre. The pop­u­la­tion of the region is just over 24,000 peo­ple, of which 60% iden­ti­fy as Indige­nous. Locat­ed 314 km from Dar­win and 1180 km from Alice Springs, the town is sit­u­at­ed on the banks of the Kather­ine Riv­er. Kather­ine has a sub-trop­i­cal cli­mate, with dis­tinct wet and dry sea­sons. The Kather­ine region also boasts mag­nif­i­cent Abo­rig­i­nal rock art, Nit­miluk (Kather­ine Gorge) Nation­al Park, the Cut­ta Cut­ta Caves Nature Park and Elsey Nation­al Park. His­tor­i­cal­ly, Kather­ine has always been impor­tant. To the local Abo­rig­ines, it was the point where the tra­di­tion­al lands of the Dago­man, Jawoyn, and War­daman met, and con­se­quent­ly, the riv­er and the near­by gorge were pop­u­lar meet­ing places.

If this sounds like a role for you, we want to hear from you.
