Welcome to Beswick

Beswick is a suburb located in the Roper Gulf Shire local government area of Lower Top End, Northern Territory.

These are the traditional lands of the Jawoyn people, the same people who own Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) to the east of Katherine and stretching towards southern Arnhem Land. In the latter part of the 19th century explorers had passed through the region, followed in the 1870s by pastoralists and the crews constructing the Overland Telegraph Line. In 1913 rich reef tin deposits were discovered at Maranboy.
