EDITH FALLS

Hello Everybody. A little oasis in the middle of Australia NT. I am guessing there are a few but this is the first one for me. Edith Falls is a beautiful place for swimming and walking. The surrounds are kept really green and there is lots of shade for camping. Which is good as there is no power so no air conditioning.

There were lots of bird life and Chris captured these 3 birds.

Edith Falls (Leliyn to the Jawoyn people) is about 40 Kms north of Katherine and then 20 Kms east inland. Edith is a sister to Katherine and the daughters of James Chambers as I mentioned in my last blog. It is in the Nitmiluk National Park and consists of beautiful waterfalls and 3 swimming pools/lakes surround by trees and boulders. The Lower Pool is just a short walk from the campgrounds and is huge. Very refreshing, but we did get a nip from an over zealous fish.

You can swim out to the waterfall

The Upper Pool is about a 2 Km climb up a steep rocky hill but really worth it.

This was the flat bit…

 We went early in the morning and it was so tranquil.

The third pool is the Sweetwater Pool. We did not go to this one as it was too hot.

Until next time…. Thanks for following 😊
