Katherine is located 316km South of Darwin along the Stuart Hi Way. Katherine is a lovely town, it has a natural vibrancy and really comes alive from February to October as the tourists roll in.

Katherine is the gate way to the four largest river systems in the NT, the Roper River, the Vic River, and the Daly River. The main sport species in these river systems is the Barramundi. The elusive Barramundi are regarded as the NT’s premium fighting fish, they are aggressive and great fun to catch.

Katherine Boats & Floats for hire offer the pleasure of boating, where and when you want, without the hassle or expense of personal boat ownership. They have 2 boats available for hire, both boats hold commercial and recreational Marine Safety accreditation. Their rates are affordable, and their team are very friendly and in a great location making it easy for you to collect and return.

They also offer caravan/camping trailer parking whilst you are hiring a boat at no extra cost.

You do not need a boat license to drive a boat in the Northern Territory. Give us a call and we can help plan the trip of a life time.

If you are planning to fish the NT during the months of October- February ensure you register for "Million Dollar Fish"
