Embark on the five-day Jatbula Trail to the hidden gem that is 17 Mile Falls, an astounding permanent water source deep within Nitmiluk National Park.

More information

These waterfalls astound all who are lucky enough to see them. A hidden gem, the waterfalls can only be accessed by trekkers on the Jatbula Trail. This trail is located in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and is a one way 58 kilometre walk from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Leliyn / Edith Falls that takes from four to five days to complete.

17 Mile Falls are a permanent water source located 28 kilometres along the Jatbula Trail. The sandstone plateau acts as a huge sponge that in turn seeps water into rivers and creeks such as 17 Mile Creek. These watercourses supply the year round water for these spectacular falls with this being a favourite place for all who walk the trail.

There is a campsite nearby with composting toilets and an Emergency Call Device.
