The Amphitheatre

National Parks and Reserves

Take a break at the Amphitheatre – a pocket of monsoon rainforest located along the Jatbula Trail. The Amphitheatre is located 26 kilometres from the Gorge precinct (Nitmiluk) and is a favourite resting place of many who walk the trail. Walkers arrive on the third day of the iconic 4-5-day bushwalk. A short, steep set of steps descends into the Amphitheatre, which is a U-shaped gorge filled with monsoon rainforest – a welcomed change from the rugged country already traversed.

You will feel as if you have entered an enchanted world of moss-covered boulders and clear rock pools. Look for the Aboriginal rock art on The Amphitheatre’s walls, which was left there by the Jawoyn people. The Jatbula Trail is a 62 kilometre one-way trek that starts at the Nitmiluk Centre and finishes at Leliyn (Edith Falls).

This highly popular walk must be booked online well in advance of your visit, to avoid disappointment.
