Built during the War , the Low Level Bridge enabled traffic to cross the Mighty Katherine River.
Being only 6 feet above the ‘Dry Season’ water Level, it is impassable during the majority of the wet season (Dec- April) when the water level is 40 feet above it. All the trees you can see in these photo's go under water
This water having originated in Arnhem Land flows through the Nitmiluk Katherine Gorge, passes through the town of Katherine and on to the Daly River where its journey of over 400+ km takes it to Anson Bay in the Joseph Boneparte Gulf (only 100 km from Darwin).
Since the advent of the Katherine River Bridge in town the low level area has become a nature reserve and a local swimming hole. The water depth here is only around 3-5 feet max and ideal for families.
Under the Low level bridge is a weir which although made of concrete gives the River a bit of character as the water cascades several feet to the lower level.
The Low Level Caravan Park is nearby
