Sandy Camp Pool is a shaded and sandy area that is a lovely campsite along the Jatbula Trail. This long distance bushwalking trail is within Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and is 58 kilometres long. It is a one way walk that takes trekkers between four and five days to complete.
Trekkers usually arrive at Sandy Camp Pool on the fourth day, 43.5 kilometres along the Jatbula Trail. The quiet and peaceful campsite on soft sandy ground beside a tranquil billabong is a welcome sight. Trekkers can cool off with a swim in the billabong before making camp, no facilities are available.
Walkers must register at the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre before departing on the walk and report your arrival to the Kiosk at Leliyn / Edith Falls. A refundable AUD50.00 deposit is required when you register and will be returned when you arrive at Leliyn / Edith Falls. There is also a camping fee of AUD3.30 per person per night and will be collected when you register.
Walkers need to make their own arrangements for transport to the gorge and from Leliyn / Edith Falls.
