Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been criticised for not visiting the Northern Territory often enough but he did come to Tindal RAAF Base today.
While technically not Katherine, we have been asked when was the last time a PM visited the NT's fourth largest settlement.
We are not sure, which is why we are asking readers if they can help.
The Prime Minister John Howard came to Katherine in the aftermath of the 1998 flood to offer residents a helping hand.
That helping hand, it turns out, was disaster relief payments of $1000 for each adult and $200 for each child.
His political foe, former Prime Minister Bob Hawke came to Tindal a decade earlier, in 1988, for the official opening of the base.
Labor leader Bill Shorten passed through the town on his way to Barunga in 2018 but then he never quite reached the top job did he?
in 1975, Gough Whitlam poured sand into the hand of Vincent Lingiari, in 1975 at Wave Hill Station, Victoria River finalising the first significant recognition of land rights by an Australian government.
But that was almost 500km away.
