Katherine Town Council would like to advise the Katherine community that the Territory Day Event at the Showgrounds has been directed by NT Police and Katherine Fire Brigade to be moved due to a nearby fire. The Northern Territory Government and Katherine Town Council support this decision as the public’s health and safety is our priority.
