Visited in the wet season so very impressive but water level was very high so crocs could enter the pool - therefore no swimming was allowed. Still worth the visit though as they are quite something!

Being wet season, Edith is closed to swimming. However the waterfall is spectacular and the flow of water really something to see. The drive in is lovely and it is a good place to just sit and have lunch.

A short trip (60 km) from Katherine. The main swimming area was popular. We did the Leliyn Trail, which is a 2.6 km walk to the Upper Falls area. It is a grade 3 (moderate) walk, but beware - it felt quite taxing in the...More

When we visited in April 2017 there was an abundance of water coming over the falls. The pool was closed to swimming which was a pity and some of the walk ways were inaccessible. This did nothing to spoil our visit though, as we knew...More

Easy access to some wonderful scenery and swimming spots. Much better than some of it's highly rated competition.

Glad we made the effort to walk to the upper Pool. What a beautiful waterfall and stunning scenery. If you have done the Gunlom walk in Kakadu this is a breeze but as usual take it easy in the heat and take heaps of water....More
