Leliyn/Edith Falls is located on the western side of Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge), A 63 kilometres drive north of Katherine along the Stuart Highway. The lush, grassy campsites in a scenic bush setting make Leliyn/Edith Falls an idyllic spot for a camping and a well-appointed Kiosk provides a welcome meal for those who have just finished walking the Jatbula Trail or those just hungry after a swim.
You can enjoy swimming in the paperbark and pandanus fringed natural pool at the base of the falls most of the year, although it may be closed to swimming at times between November through to April.
The area is great for hiking with the 2.6 kilometre Leliyn Trail offering a challenging walk along a steep, rocky loop. There is a chance for a refreshing swim in the upper pool of Leliyn / Edith Falls half way around the trail. Leliyn / Edith Falls is the finishing point of the 62 kilometre Jatbula Trail walking track, which begins at Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge)
