It is definitely worth the trip off the Stuart Hwy to Edith Falls. There is a small cafe and a lovely grassed and shady area to relax on after a swim in the large swimming hole.

It was a very hot walk to the Edith Falls, no shades and the first part is quite steep. The water and the swimming was great (upper pool). The path could be even out and better maintained.

One of my favorite points when we visited NT. It's a definite must go - especially to the main pool area.. love love love it. The hike along the way is fairly easy.. there are other trails near the pool where you get to see waterfalls from a distance. it's not a very long hike and pretty worth it especially... More

A short 45 minute walk up to the pools with options for a longer return walk. At the base of the falls is a vast pool ideal for swimming

Well worth the visit. A safe swimming hole with easy access. We spent a couple of hours there on an extremely hot day.

Even in the dry season, when we visited, the waters are cascading from the top of the escarpment down in to three waterfalls and, believe me, the water is SOOO refreshing in the heat of a 35C day! The Falls ("Leliyn" is the indigenous name for them) are 60 kms north of Katherine on the Stuart Highway (42 kms from... More

Although the big pool is great, it is worthwhile to walk to the upper pools for a relaxing swim and a great view.
