Judbarra National Park, formerly known as Gregory National Park, is located 359 km south of Darwin and closest to Katherine. It is divided into two sections: the bigger Western section and smaller Eastern section. The park was dual named Judbarra/Gregory National Park until 2021. The land sits upon land belonging to various indigenous groups, including the Ngarinyman and Karrangpurru and Malngin people. Caves and rock art remains one of the main attractions, as left by the indigenous population. The eastern section offers the Matt Wilson Lookout and Campground, Sullivan Creek Campground, along with the Escarpment Walk and Ngawilbinbin Walk. The western section offers the Big Horse Campground, Limestone Gorge Campground, Bullita Campground, and the Lupayi Campground. The famous Gregory Tree is located in the western section, and is a sacred site for the Aboriginal people. You can also enjoy views of the Victoria River along the way, and learn of the North Australia Expedition: an early expedition in the area. The Calcite Flow Walk and the Limestone Ridge Loop Walk are both offered in the western section. Judbarra is also identified to be an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International, as the park hosts much of the eastern subspecies of the white-quilled rock-pigeon and the endangered Gouldian finch.
