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.
