Edith Falls

The Edith Falls are a series of cascading waterfalls and pools in the Edith River in the Nitmiluk National Park, which also encompasses the famous Katherine Gorge. They are located approximately 60 Kms north of Katherine and 300 Kms south of Darwin.

The falls descend from an elevation of 176 metres (577 ft) and range in height between 8.7–12 metres (29–39 ft). There are trails to the top of the escarpment, allowing visitors to view the waterfalls. Edith Falls is connected to the Katherine Gorge via the 66 Km Jatbula walk. The traditional custodians of the land surrounding the waterfall are the Jawoyn people.

We stay at the beautiful National Park campsite for 2 nights, taking advantage of the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters.
