  • Views of the waterfall is a short 100m walk from the car park along a smooth concrete footpath. There are plenty of information maps and posters exiting the car park. There is a toilet and shop in the car park. Ranger signposts will tell if swimming is open or closed. See website link for comprehensive and up to date information.
  • One of the most beautiful places on earth ..grassed camp sites highly recommend you go there ...2 days is the best time spent there...great little shop fantastic showers and laundry...powerd sites
  • On my road trip around Australia I have managed to stop here four times. I love it. Great campground, birdlife in abundance, great walks and a waterfall to swim under. What more could you want? OK, a plunge pool to cool off in without a hike - it's there too!
  • Fabulous. Amenities, shade, helpful staff. Gorgeous falls...what more could u ask for. Get in early though as popular place
  • 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.
