Borroloola is located in Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is located on the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Golf of Carpentaria is a swallow and large sea. It is said that the gulf is young in the geological terms as at the last ice age it was a dry land. Land that borders the Gulf is general flat. The major rivers of the gulf are the Roper, Norman, Wilton, Mac Arthur, Cox, Flinders, Calvert, Leichhardt, Gilbert, Archer, Staaten, Alice, Mitchell, Mission, Wenlock and Smithburne. The first Explorer from Europe to visit this region was Willem Janszoon from Holland in 1606. In the years 1802 and 1803 it was visited by the Captain Matthew Flinders. Ludwig Leichhardt was the first overland explorer in 1844 and 1845.
