The park incorporates 25 km of the Flora River and an ideal spot for
canoeing, fishing and boating. Djarrung and Katherine Falls are a short
walk from the campground.
Facilities at the Djarrung campground include a camping area with
toilets, showers, drinking water and wood barbecues. Tables and
barbecues are provided in the nearby picnic area. Camping fees apply
and should be paid in the campground honesty boxes or to the
ranger. River access for small boats is provided at a canoe and
small boat launching facility, 4.3km from the Djarrung Campground.
Flora River Nature Park protects two major vegetation communities:
open woodland, which consists of widely spaced trees with a grassy
understory, and the riverine forest lining the river banks and
islands. Extensive stands of the palm, Livistonia rigida, a
plant with limited distribution, are found in the riverine forest along
with river pandanus and melaleucas.
The Pig-nosed Turtle, Carettochelys insculpta, which was once
thought to occur only in Papua New Guinea, has been recorded within the
Park. It is only found in a few localities in the Northern Territory.
The Park also protects a variety of fish including barramundi, bream,
catfish and grunters. Both Freshwater, Crocodylus johnstonii, and
Estuarine (saltwater) crocodiles, Crocodylus porosus, are known to
inhabit the river.
