Starting from the end of Edith Falls Road, Nitmiluk, this walk takes you to the Sweetwater Pool and back via the Jatbula Trail, following the Edith River along the way. You’ll be rewarded with a much more secluded and tranquil swim compared to the Edith Falls pools, if you put in the effort and time to this journey. Sweetwater Pool is known for its magically still and reflective water surface which makes for exceptional photos. The area around the pool is teeming with wildlife and features diverse vegetation. Speaking of, you may even spot a freshwater turtle if you’re sneaky enough. The camping area nearby has toilets and drinking water, so feel free to stay the night. Although, you need to get a permit from the Edith Falls Kiosk beforehand. Keep an eye out for crocodiles. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
