Short drive from Katherine to northern Nitmiluk National Park, stayed at Edith Falls camp ground.
Edith Falls – great spot. Love it more than Katherine Gorge.
Parked the van along with 6 others and did the short 150m walk down to the swimming hole. Ranger fella was really nice! Hasn’t seen a fresh water croc in ages and with the sheer cliff and waterfall up to the top swimming hole I doubt any can get there.
Sunscreened up and left for our walk up to top swimming hole around 2pm. Bad idea! So hot! But we took it slow and had heaps of water (unlike others we passed).
Top swimming hole was amazing. Recommend the walk. But definitely don’t take the right walking path – so hard climbing over rocks – the left path is shorter and graded and a million times easier to walk up.
Great refreshing swim up top – few other people there.
Dave got a scare when some bubbles popped up behind him haha.
Fair bit of water coming over the top falls which was nice. Took some piccies.
Sunbaked a bit and then decided to walk back, got back down just as the sun was setting.
Ranger fella was packing up for the day so just told us to pick our own camp spot and he’ll sort us out in the morning.
