If you drive north of Katherine for about 40km and take the turn off on the right for another 20km you come to Edith Falls. You can also get here by hiking overland from Katherine Gorge, but I don’t recommend it as it is a 65km walk, can take five days and you have to carry adequate supplies. The falls... More

It was the wet and a few days before Christmas so the falls were completely deserted. The piece and quiet inspite of the immense nature before us was breathtaking. It was boiling hot, flies, bugs were quite a torture yet it was beyond beautiful!

The hike is challenging but not too challenging for families with kids around 8-9 or older. Bring drinking water and swimsuits and enjoy a refreshing reward at the upper pool with its picturesque waterfall. Bring a rag or an old t-shirt to keep the constant flies at bay!

The hike up is pretty short and it's a loop so you don't have to turn back the same way. Pools on top are pretty nice with the falls.

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 :)
