Edith (Leliyn) Falls

Edith (Leliyn) Falls

Escape to the invigorating Leliyn (Edith) Falls located on the western side of Nitmiluk National Park, 240 kilometres south of Darwin. If you are tempted by the idea of unwinding, surrounded by picturesque scenery, bushwalking to scenic lookouts and cooling off in exhilarating rock pools, then this is the place to visit. This pristine environment is home to natural swimming holes bordered by Pandanus and Paperbark trees at the base of the falls.

The Leliyn Trail is a 2.6 kilometre circuit that climbs past panoramic lookouts and weaves through grevillea and spinifex, reward yourself with a dip in the sensational Upper Pool to put some bounce back in our step. For the enthusiastic, you can choose to take on the walk to the tranquil Sweetwater Pool, 8.6 kilometres return, where there is another smaller campground though a permit is required. If walking too far just isnt your idea of a good time then the Main Lower Pool will be a real hit as this amazing lagoon is just a brief walk from the carpark.

Keep watch for the ancient Aboriginal paintings that decorate rock faces in the area, they are really special so be careful not to disturb them. The campground makes Edith Falls the ideal spot to bask in the tranquility of lush, shady, well maintained (unpowered) caravan and camping sites. This inspiring location is a must to explore on your next journey to peace and tranquility.
