I would totally recommend visiting this place. There is a swimming spot near the car park but we opted for the hike up the hill (1k?) to arrive at the upper pools, just perfect. I went for a quick swim under the waterfall to cool...More

I was raised in Katherine and this is one of my favourite spots. So stunning. It's a must if you're visiting the N.T.

Beaut spot for a picnic lunch and a swim in the gorge. Well maintained and tidy facilities frame a sensational place for a quick swim in warm water.

We had been here in the wet with lots of warnings about crocs. So this time it was a pleasure to be able to swim across the pool to the falls and enjoy the views from the water. Reasonable campground coffee shop too.

We nearly didn't go here because we thought there might not be much water in the dry season. So glad we did. We climbed up to the upper pool first and had a lovely swim. We then went down to the lower pool and swam...More

Not far at all. About 30-40 min drive north on the main Stuart highway. There is a well marked sign on the right and a paved road to the parking lot. The trail loop going up to the various lagoons and waterfalls is well... More
