A hidden waterfall delight in Nitmiluk

The tranquility and beauty of Nitmiluk National Park (also known as Katherine Gorge) is a highlight to any trip in the Northern Territory or even the entirety of Australia.

My Contiki group started our time here with a river cruise, (around 70 AUD from memory) which lasted a few hours.

We had a wonderful boat guide who not only shared the history of this national park, but also took us to the most gorgeous waterfall I’ve ever seen.

There was only a few others here as it is quite hard to get to – we were lucky that there had been recent rain which allowed us to swim at all (especially without the threat of crocodiles!)

The weather was absolutely perfect, in fact a rainbow even lingered under the waterfall, what more can you ask for 🙂

We stopped in at Edith Falls for lunch and while you can also swim here at certain parts of the year, this was not the case for us in March.

It would certainly be a pleasure to have a dip here since the humidity was fierce. Swimming in pristine freshwater is so refreshing!

The signs displaying the croc threat though, were enough of a deterrent!

From hikes, to scenic flights and more there is a variety of activities to keep you busy here and Nitmiluk will not leave visitors to the NT disappointed!
