Northern Rockhole, in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge), is an enjoyable half day walk from the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre at Katherine Gorge. It is also a lovely lunch spot on the first day of the iconic Jatbula Trail. This is a one way 58 kilometre trail that starts at Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) and finishes between four and five days later at Leliyn/ Edith Falls.
You�ll climb over dark volcanic rocks to reach the base of the falls, where you can see many layers of sedimentary rocks in the cliff face. A lovely swimming spot, in the early half of the year there is usually a single drop waterfall that you can bathe beneath. As the country starts to dry out the smooth green pool at the base provides unusual 'must see' reflections.
Trekkers of the Jatbula Trail must register at the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre before starting the Jatbula Trail and deregister at Edith Kiosk upon return. For the slightly less adventurous, you can do a return walk from the Nitmiluk Visitors Centre to Northern Rockhole in a day.
