Nitmiluk National Park, Leilyn
The Edith Falls turn off is 42km north of Katherine on the Stuart Highway and then there is a further 19km of bitumen road to reach the entrance.
Close to the carpark and at the base of Edith Falls is a large pandanus fringed plunge pool that is a popular swimming area. There are also some really nice walks in the park. One includes the Leilyn Trail, which is a 2.6km round trip that climbs to the top of the escarpment and then down to the upper pools. The walk offers amazing views over the waterfalls and Edith River. The upper pool provides a welcome swimming hole after the walk. There are longer walks available following the Edith River that come to beautiful secluded swimming holes.
During the wet season the plunge pool may be closed for swimming and access to the park is sometimes limited.
