Edith River Crossing is a permanent swimming spot along the Jatbula Trail. This 58 kilometre trail in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) takes between four and five days to complete.

There are many ways to experience the spectacular Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and its world-renowned gorge system - you can walk, swim, canoe, boat or fly. Walks over the sandstone plateau range from an hour to five days and offer spectacular views of the gorge, as well as other landscapes. Some, like the 58 kilometre Jatbula Trail, take in most of Nitmiluk's landscapes - monsoon rainforest, stone country, upland swamp, woodland and river – while the shorter walks may not be quite so varied, but are always spectacular. You can hire canoes at the gorge, or bring your own.
