The stone country, or Arnhem Land escarpment, is one of the most extraordinary wilderness areas in Australia. The Jatbula Trail in the Nitmiluk National Park features magnificent waterfalls that tumble from high quartzite cliffs, shady monsoon forests that line the creeks and stunning Jawoyn Aboriginal rock art that adorns the caves and overhangs.

This trek is the tropical equivalent of Tasmania’s Overland Track, a full pack bushwalk that gains access to the heart of the country. We trek during the cooler months to ensure the best experience of this tropical environment.

The Jatbula Trail winds along the edge of the escarpment from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Edith Falls (Leliyn), where you will be totally immersed in this
stunning wilderness.
