Leliyn (Edith Falls)

Picturesque waterfalls and great swimming are the well-known features of this section of Nitmiluk National Park.

There’s always refreshing water to enjoy at Leliyn year-round.

Leliyn (Edith Falls) is located on the western side of the park, a 60km drive north of Katherine along the Stuart Highway. The lush, grassy campsites in a scenic bush setting make Leliyn an idyllic spot for a camping. A well-appointed kiosk provides a welcome meal for those who have just finished walking the Jatbula Trail or those just hungry after a swim.

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 2.6km 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, half way around the trail. You can also enjoy the longer 9km return walk to Sweetwater Pool, a tranquil swimming hole. Leliyn (Edith Falls) is the finishing point of the 62km Jatbula Trail walking track, which begins at Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge).
