Starting from Edith Falls Carpark, Nitmiluk, this circuit walk gives you a tour of the Edith Falls rock pools, exploring the eucalypt forest surrounding the falls along the way. Three swimming holes are waiting for you to hop in and cool off as you take in the relaxing scenery. The upper and middle pools are lovely as well, but the huge and scenic plunge pool surely takes the cake. Play around and try out each pool without the need to worry about food, as there is a kiosk near the car park. Although this shouldn’t discourage you from having a lovely picnic near the pool with your own food and maybe a nice wine. This place is truly a haven amidst the surrounding dry areas. There are multiple lookouts along the way that will quench your thirst of views. Keep an eye out for strong currents in the wet season. 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.
