Donkey Camp B&B
On Pandanus Farm, a working mango orchard on the banks of the Katherine River, this beautiful rammed-earth homestead is surrounded by tropical savannah. The unlikely name derives from the property being a base to transport gold across the river by donkey early last century; several donkeys are still kept here. There are opportunities for bushwalking and birdwatching, and further along Gorge Rd is the entrance to Nitmiluk National Park and Katherine Gorge, one of the great wonders of the north.
