Edith Falls are in the Northern part of Australia, near Katherine in the Northern Territory.
The one thing that makes traveling in the dry Australian outback for weeks on end is the opportunity to grab a swim in a lovely warm (or at lest not cold) lake, river. Thought you must chose with extreme care a swiming location that is safe. The Pools at Edith falls are just such a place.
Back in 2010 I decided to spend three months on an Australian Photographic safari traveling over 19,000km. With the objective of building a large portfolio of Australian landscape photos. Edith Falls was on my shopping list of places to visit. The Falls are literally an oasis in the middle on nowhere, this photo I have taken is of the bottom of the falls which are based several hundred meters above.
The Falls are in the Nitmiluk National Park 45 km form Katherine and have several waterfalls (the largest being 12 meters) and rock pools which are ideal for swimming in. Though I should mention that there is a bit of a walk and a climb to the higher rock pools. Certainly well worth the effort. There is a camping area at the bottom of the falls which when I was there had lovely green grass next to the area where I took this photograph. I found the showers hear to be excellent.
