Have your last swim and bite to eat before triumphantly completing the arduous Jatbula Trail, savouring refreshing waters and stunning reflections.
Sweetwater Pool is a secluded swimming hole on the Edith River. It is a great place for swimming and relaxing and is located along a 4-km walking trail from Leliyn/Edith Falls. It is also the last swimming spot and usually a lunch location along the iconic Jatbula Trail, a 58-kilometre long bushwalking trail in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) that starts at Katherine Gorge and finishes at Leliyn / Edith Falls.
Time your visit to Sweetwater Pool for early morning or late afternoon to catch the sight of stunning reflections across the still waters. Have a dip and then find a spot on a flat ledge to warm yourself. If you're lucky you may see several species of turtle if you decide to camp the night.
Overlooking Sweetwater Pool is the last campsite (with toilet) before you join the Leliyn loop walkers.
