Jatbula Trail

Embark on the arduous five-day Jatbula Trail in Nitmiluk National Park for off-the-beaten-track scenery, waterfalls and Jawoyn Aboriginal rock art.

The 58 kilometre Jatbula Trail features stunning scenery, waterfalls and Jawoyn Aboriginal rock art. The trail is a four to five day walk that is only marked in one direction, from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk Visitor Centre) to Leliyn / Edith Falls. The Jatbula Trail is a long and potentially difficult walk, however, adequate preparation will ensure a safe and pleasant trip. There is a ferry service across the Katherine River as part of the walk on the first day.

Walkers must register at the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre before departing on the walk and report your arrival to the Kiosk at Leliyn / Edith Falls. A refundable AUD50.00 deposit is required when you register and will be returned when you arrive at Leliyn / Edith Falls. There is also a camping fee of AUD3.30 per person per night and will be collected when you register.

Walkers need to make their own arrangements for transport to the gorge and from Leliyn / Edith Falls.
