We went to the Nitmiluk National Park – Edith falls. The falls are nice even though relatively small but the large waterhole is great for swimming. Access to the pool is easy as steps are present .

There is good parking and a kiosk.

We then did the 12 km return Sweetwater pool walk. This is a moderate level walk which takes about 3 to 5 hours. It goes through varying flora and along the waterway. There are several places where there are great swimming holes. We did our swim at the top swimming hole which is large and deep and great fun. It is particularly refreshing "halfway" through your walk.

The return walk is somewhat shorter than the outward journey and follows your original path initially but then takes another part of a loop back to the Edith falls.

You will not be disappointed with this hike.

This is a short hour drive out of Katherine. Plenty of parking. Grounds well maintained. Nice big water hole for a refreshing swim. If possible bring your own food and drinks as the café is very dear.

We arrived here late afternoon and were a bit tired to think about swimming here but it looked very inviting and would be a lovely place to bring a picnic and stay a bit longer

We visited Edith falls in the early dry season and whilst we didn’t camp it would make a fabulous camping spot. The falls are beautiful, the waters crystal clear, there are some lovely walking trails that you need a moderate fitness for, and the bird life is phenomenal. Would definitely recommend.
