The Indigenous languages spoken around the Pigeon Hole area include Bilinara, Mudburra, Ngaringman and Gurindji.

A one way journey, driving from Katherine to Pigeon Hole/Nitjpurru, will take approximately 5 hours. The main '4 wheel drive only' dirt track is annually cut off in the ‘Wet Season’ (Dec - Mar).
