Celebrate the triumph of completing the arduous Jatbula Trail with a dip in the paperbark and pandanus fringed pools, or wander along shorter trails.

More information

Leliyn/Edith Falls is located on the western side of Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge), 42 kilometres north of Katherine along the Stuart Highway.

You can enjoy swimming in the paperbark and pandanus fringed natural pool at the base of the falls most of the year, although it may be closed to swimming at times between November through to April.

The area is great for bushwalking with the 2.6 kilometre Leliyn Trail offering a challenging walk along a steep, rocky loop. There is a chance for a refreshing swim in the upper pool of Leliyn / Edith Falls half way around the trail. You can also enjoy the longer 8.6 kilometre return walk to Sweetwater Pool, a tranquil swimming hole. Leliyn / Edith Falls is the finishing point of the 58 kilometre Jatbula Trail walking track, which begins at Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) headquarters.

The lush, grassy campsites in a scenic bush setting make Leliyn/Edith Falls an idyllic spot for camping, camping fees apply.
