Once you manage to make your way up the hill, and down to Edith falls, It's a lovely experience. The water is very refreshing and the views are gorgeous.

One of my favourite places in the NT! Lovely for a swim. Definately worth the look. Can get busy depending on the day.

Like most places in The Northern Territory, Edith Falls is a real wonder. The turnoff on the Stuart Highway is about 40 km North of Katherine and about 15 to 20 mins drive in. We had a look around the bottom large lagoon and walked up the top of the water fall to find other small but swimming friendly lagoons.... More

We travelled to Edith Falls with our 11 month old son couldn't go to all of the pools with him as it was too hot. But we swam in the lower pool it's really beautiful. Won't disappoint

Amazingly beautiful - and unlike many similar attractions - incredibly easy to get to. For a swim on a hot day there is nowhere else in the world like Edith Falls :)

Best to go before 3pm because it's very hot after 3pm. After a fairly hefty walk, you need proper walking shoes, at least 1-2litres of water per person, food and supplies make your way up to the top. The falls were absolutely beautiful. Hesitate to say that it's croc freee because it's the territory it wouldn't be. Don't touch the... More

We visited and were really surprised to see how much water was running there. There were pools to swim in and the 2.8km circular walk was well signed and very scenic indeed. Back at the car park there is a very good refreshment stop, ice creams that were very well frozen and beautifully cold drinks. Well done to the lady... More
