17 Mile Falls Jatbula

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

17 Mile Falls amaze all who are lucky enough to see them.

A hidden gem, the waterfalls can only be accessed by trekkers on the Jatbula Trail. The trail is located in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and is a one way 62 kilometre walk from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Leliyn / Edith Falls that takes from 4 to 5 days to complete.
17 Mile Falls Campground is the third campground reached walking the trail, popular with walkers with its serene and striking scenery. The falls run throughout the year, fed by a permanent water source with the sandstone plateau acting as a huge sponge that slowly seeps water into rivers and creeks. Toilets and an Emergency Call Device (ECD) are located close by to campsites.
