Katherine Hot Springs
was the Katherine Gorge and also Katherine Springs. We have now visited
both and there are still a few things to see and do on our return visit.
Katherine Hot Springs are in a public reserve. The water is thermally
heated and is a narrow stream of varying depths. There were a lot of
visitors - most sitting in the warm water even though the temperature was
over 30 degrees. Peter climbed in and very quickly got out - he wasn't too
sure about what else was swimming in the water with us. I stayed in quite a
bit longer and I didn't see anything that concerned me - no crocodiles, no
fish but plenty of weed which wasn't too pleasant.
