Crystal Falls

National Parks and Reserves

The Crystal Falls area features a mass of rock pools, rapids and small cascades that fall away into a spectacular and large waterfall. The area can only be reached by trekking the iconic Jatbula Trail. Located within Nitmiluk National Park this 62 kilometre one way trail from the Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Leliyn / Edith Falls, takes between four to five days to complete. Bookings are essential.

19.5 kilometres along the Jatbula Trail, Crystal Falls is the second campsite reached on the trail. Crystal Falls are an inviting backdrop to the campsites, with many of the sites shaded by trees and the sounds of the cascades inviting you to cool off, in the deep crystal clear pools. Crystal Falls flows all year round as it is fed by nearby swamps and springs. Enjoy an amazing sunset from whilst taking a dip in one of the refreshing pools. Toilets and an Emergency Call Device (ECD) are located close by to campsites.
