A great short trip to a beautiful swimming hole. Great scenery too. This was my second visit, having come a decade ago.

20 km off of the main highway is this isolated oasis. Unable to swim due to crocodiles in the water. Small but pleasant kiosk.

This lovely swim place is some 40+km north of Katherine on the Stuart Hwy, then turn off for another 20km on sealed roads, so is easy access, no worries there. Surrounded by large pandanus fringed plunge pools great for swimming, the top pool is best. Also has a variety of good walking tracks including the Leliyn Trial which is a 2.6km round trip that climbs to the top of the escarpment and then down to the upper pool. This track offers spectacular views over the waterfalls and the Edith River. Energetic? Then take the longer 8.6km return walk to Sweetwater Pool which is a beautiful secluded swimming hole on the Edith River. We loved this place so much, we went back there again before we carried on our planned journey.

Of all the swimming spots in NT this has been our favourite. So much so we are going back for a second visit on pour way back to Darwin. Swam to the falls. Kids loved the challenge. You need at least a few hours here to appreciate and if you are not a strong swimmer bring a noodle or some bouyancy device so you can flat and relax.
