Jatbula Trail NT

The Jatbula Trail, near Katherine in Australia's Northern Territory, traverses into the Arnhemland escarpment. Each campsite is situated close to water, allowing a relaxing swim at the end of each day's hike. It can be completed over 5 or 6 days at a reasonable pace, meandering for about 60km through Nitmiluk National Park. The trail starts at Nitmiluk Visitor Centre, close to Katherine Gorge, and ends at Edith Falls, or Leliyn, on the western side of the Nat Park
