  • Great place to visit for the day if staying in Katherine. Swimming during dry season in the lower pool is wee worth the experience. The rim walk is moderate with fantastic views of the falls. Camp sites here are generous and well maintained, well worth a stay. Toilets and showers available but no power.
  • Lower pool was closed so we went 2km to Upper pool, awesome pool with beautiful waterfall, plenty of place to swimm and enjoy refreshing water.
  • Fantastic place for a swim and bush walk Bring your noodle. Great camping as well
  • Fun place for a swim, the current near the falls is really strong so it is quite a challenge getting close
  • An oasis after the long drive out of Kakadu. The facilities were well maintained and cafe, although I didn't eat there, looked good.
