Headed to this spot as the guide said it was not the greatest waterfall in the area but it was quite pretty. Well he got it spot on. After the car park you take a paved path to the bridge where you get the best views of the falls and also the river crashing over a mini fall! I don't... More

these Falls are great in the Wet, as far as the volume of the water flow is concerned. however, there is no swimming in it then because of the current and the possible presence of Saltwater crocodiles. The mist from the falls could be felt from around 100 metres across the pool.You can still get your feet wet in the... More

Went for an adventure during wet season. While the bottom pool was closed the top was open and so was Sweetwater Pools. The top pools were great, although still some strong currents because of all the wet season rain. The walk to Sweetwater Pool was a little challenging due to long grass and some very wet sections. Otherwise it was... More

Just called in on the way back to Darwin and what a jewel. Great grassed areas nice info centre and the view of the bottom pond so inviting to just jump in We didn't have the time to do the walk up and very disappointed we didn't have the time Worth a detour or stay in the camping ground

A truely wild natural and lovely place to spend an afternoon or a week, splashing around in the sultry water...doesnt get any better. Where I come from every natural wonder has been fenced off, hand railed up and made civilized for the tourists, instead of being left in its ruggedly beautiful natural state as you will find it here.

We were here in September 2016 and headed up to the (slightly quieter) Upper Pools. It's an uphill path with steps in places. There isn't a huge amount of shade on the way up and it was hot when we were there. There are then steps down to the pools - there are two which you can walk around, or... More

3 small children under 10 but the made it up to the falls on the walk OK. They loved being able to swim in the water in the NT without any Croc fears.

We really enjoyed our few days at Edith Falls Caravan Park on a nice shady site. Plenty of room for caravans & tents. We did the 2 hour trek up the top and it was well worth the effort. Beautiful swimming area for those that can't climb. Great coffee at the little kiosk.

Do the loop walk, it is a goat track, with little steps. Loads of Lizards roaming around, even saw a snake, be careful and stomp your feet. Make sure you take plenty of water. The view from the top is amazing, it a bit of a climb down to the waterfall, but well worth it, clear water, very refreshing. If... More
