Take a break at the Amphitheatre - a pocket of monsoon rainforest located along the Jatbula Trail.
The Amphitheatre is located 25 kilometres from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) and is a favourite resting place of many who walk the trail. Walkers arrive there on the second 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 and Dagoman people.
The Jatbula Trail is a 58-kilometre one-way trek that starts at the Nitmiluk Visitors Centre and finishes at Leliyn/Edith Falls. Walkers must register at the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre and report their arrival to the kiosk at Leliyn/Edith Falls. A refundable AUD50.00 deposit is required and will be returned at Leliyn/Edith Falls. A camping fee of AUD3.30 per person per night and will be collected when you register.Visit Website
