Jatbula Trail

National Parks and Reserves

The Jatbula Trail is a 62 kilometre one way walk, departing from Nitmiluk Gorge, traversing the western edge of the Arnhem Land escarpment and finishing at Leliyn (Edith Falls).
You will walk in the footsteps of generations of Jawoyn who traditionally travelled this land over sandstone plateau scrub, woodlands, monsoon forests and riverine landscapes.

The trail can be completed in 5 days/4 nights or 6 days/5 nights with each night spent at a stunning campsite close to a babbling spring, cascade or a plunging waterfall.
