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

A short walk and then a brilliant swim in a lovely setting. The swim was particularly appreciated as in most places where you think you can swim you can't because of the croc. risk. Here is croc. free.

Stopped here for a while and had a swim in the pool at the bottom of the falls. It was a wonderful experience.

We drove out to Edith Falls from Katherine and spent about 30 minutes climbing to the upper falls in very hot temperatures. Not many around and spent a few hours cooling off under the falls.

The heat here was an issue when we visited, intending to walk up the lookout and round the circuit. At 40 degrees we elected to walk around the water, having started the walk and thought better of it. Beautiful location and great for swimming
