About the region

Judbarra – Gregory National Park

Everything in this part of the Victoria River District is big, including the barramundi, saltwater crocodiles, the landscape and challenges on the many four-wheel drive (4WD) tracks through the park.

In the west of the park, don’t miss the historic Gregory’s Tree, a large boab tree with carvings from Augustus Gregory’s 1885 north Australian expedition. It’s an Aboriginal sacred site and registered heritage site, and has interpretive signs at its base.
