Katherine accommodation is mainly available in motel and hotel configurations. There is one resort style property. Most of the motels are owned by the larger organised tour companys that take tourists through the Northern Territory's most important natural attractions like the nearby Katherine Gorge. For this reason you must book your Katherine accommodation well in advance. This advice goes for all of the remote places you will want to visit throughout the Northern territory. Vast amounts of accommodation are reserved purly for patrons of the organised tour industry.
