Don't miss it when you are in Katherine.

Beautiful falls make the effort to go to the Upper Pools...but take lots of water to drink...not much shade up there. the water is a very refreshing COLD.

A beautiful place with good a good swimming hole. Take a walk above the falls and some wonderful 'spa baths' can be found. Camping is very good, with semi private sites spread around the camping grounds.

This is a lovely place for a swim. We didn't go for any of the walks because of the heat, only strolling around and splashing at the swimming spots. The water was crystal clear! Well worth the drive in (from the Stuart Highway).

Easy to get to... just a short walk from the parking area to the swimming hole. The water was cool and inviting.

We stopped off here on a whim. We parked up and set off on the lovely walk, We arrived at the upper falls and it was such a magical spot, Oh I wished I had been more organised and packed my togs, missed out on the swim this time, but would love to come back again.

Well worth the walk up to the top pools (only 20 mins) and makes the swim all that more worthwhile. Great view as well When get to car park take path on the left up as quicker and easier than that on the right past the bottom pools.

Short walk to the top pools and excellent facilities down in the camp...gorgeous views. Lots of wildlife on the area as well as flowers....worth the 20 km off the highway...

Did the Llewelyn trail up and around the falls. Lovely views. Took just under two hours. Hard struggle at times. Hot. But well worth the walk. Just 2.8km, but mostly up and down and over rocks.

We visited Edith Falls on our journey from Katherine to Batchelor. We decided to take the loop track which was a fairly easy walk with some short steeper bits which presented no problems at all. It was a nice walk arriving at the top pool where we enjoyed a refreshing swim and beautiful scenery. The waterfall was cascading into the... More

Short walk and great swimming in the different pools. We did not use the edith falls plunge pool as very commercial with entry. Have done the walk to Sweetwater Pool and the Leliyn round track. Loved the long pool which we had basically for us the whole afternoon!!! Sweetwater pool very nice too. Camp ground at the bottom can be... More
