There are two major accomodation hubs in the Nitmiluk NP a small campground at Edith Falls and camping , cabins and 5 star lodges at Katherine Gorge.
Edith Falls campground sits beside a big lagoon at the bottom of a series of waterfalls where the Edith River cascades downward off the Arnham Land Plateau.
The Upper Falls swimming hole is at the top of the escarpment
But the Edith River has more treasures further up stream.
An appropriate 2km walk along the top of the Plateau is the Long Pool.
A perfect place for a natural spa
A further 2km along the trail is Sweet water
A lovely swimming hole it is also the final camping spot on the Jarbulla trail.
You can also walk up from Edith Falls campground and camp overnight at Sweetwater.
The swimming whole that will stick in my mind though is the Long Pool
There are no reservations at the Edith Falls campground so it’s best to get there early as the sites go quickly.
The kiosk is really friendly for checking in and healthy snacks
If you don’t want to hike to swim the main swimming hole.
Which at sunset turns an amazing shade of red at sunset.
