Timber Creek was named in 1855 when the explorer Augustus Gregory used timber from the banks of the creek to repair his expedition’s boat. The first inhabitants were the Ngaliwurra and Nungali Aboriginal people, descendants of whom still live in Timber Creek.
Today, this small town has a range of accommodation, activities and other facilities for the traveler. Walk along the Heritage Trail to see wildlife, the historic Police museum and visit the Nackeroo Monument which is situated up on the escarpment with fantastic views of the Victoria Valley. In the World War II, the Indigenous people worked with the Nackeroos in the Victoria River district serving as guides and trainers in survival skills for the soldiers. In 1998 the old Timber Creek Community Government Council built this monument for the Nackeroos.
Timber Creek lies at the central point on the Victoria Highway between Katherine and Kununurra. The trip from Katherine to Timber Creek takes about 3 hours. With its amazing barra fishing, beautiful scenery and friendly people, we invite you to spend some time in our unique town. Timber Creek is the gateway to the Gregory and Keep River National Parks, a bird enthusiast’s paradise, and the launching site for river fishing and crocodile spotting. To the north town’s boundary is the Bradshaw Defence Field Training Area across the Victoria River. There are a couple of events that happen each year, one being the Timber Creek Festival held annually in the second week of June. Timber Creek Service Delivery Centre of the Victoria Daly Shire Council is dedicated to the maintenance and development of services to improve the lifestyle and the quality of life for all people in the Victoria River valley.
