Butterfly Falls Campground is one of the five camping areas within the Limmen National Park. The site has bush camping with basic facilities, offering 6 defined sites. Campers can also swim at the base of the falls in the naturally formed pool. The Park is perfect for campers looking for a more adventurous camping experience.
Limmen National Park is located in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Australia’s Northern Territory and is approximately 305 km southeast of Katherine and 76 km northwest of Borroloola.
The Park can be accessed from Katherine by leaving the Stuart Highway about 10 km south of Mataranka and following the Roper Highway east to the Pt Roper Road, (turn-off 3 km before Roper Bar). From Borroloola follow the Carpentaria Highway for 32 km before heading north along the gravel road for another 44 km.
Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the National Park entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
