The view downstream from the Katherine railway bridge through katherine township.
This is another good spot to view the Red Cross Canoe

The new railway bridge is about 4.5 km downstream and
the railway line will connect Darwin to the railhead in Alice

shipping port in Darwin.
Here are a few photos of the same

heavy rainfall in the Arnhem land catchment. Did pretty much the
same in late 2004.
