17 Mile Falls
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 the Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Leliyn / Edith Falls that takes between 4 to 5 days to complete.
17 Mile Falls campground is the third campground reached walking the trail, popular with walkers for 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.
This highly popular walk needs to be booked in advance - as the limited positions fill early.
Walking and camping fees apply.
