Overview

Cato River Recreational Area is located close to Dhalinybuy homeland and is operated by Liya Wanhurr Aboriginal Corporation who also operate cultural tours at their homeland. By car, Dhalinybuy is just over one hour from Nhulunbuy (86km). Leaving Nhulunbuy, drive along the Central Arnhem Road for approximately 64km. The Dhalinybuy turnoff is after the Matamata turn off. Both roads are marked with small blue signs.

Each campsite offers a picnic table and a fire pit. There are also three shade structures and one composting toilet available for use. 

The nearby Cato River is a fisher's dream, particularly for those chasing the elusive barramundi! There is a boat launching facility located close to the campgrounds - be careful though as the ramp can get quite muddy and can only be accessed at high tide most of the time. 

You can book these campsites online, and will need a permit for the Northern Land Council for your transit to the campground.
