Travel Vlog | Northern Territory Road Trip – Katherine Gorge, Edith Falls, Katherine Hot Spring EP33

This video covers 3 EPIC (& different) swimming holes in Northern Territory Australia. Excited to take you with us on the ultimate Australian adventure around the Top End!💦👌🌴🥂 As Dunc says, “we’re dipping’ all day” lol.

Welcome back to episode 33, our FINAL VIDEO in the Northern Territory before we head west to cross the border to Western Australia as we travel Australia on our big lap. Travelling the NT? You’ll want to put these places at the top of your bucket list.

Key info:

The 1st gorge was closed as its getting close to Northern Territory Wet Season, so if we wanted to see the gorge (and not go on a tour) we’d have to hike 6km in the 40 degree heat to Butterfly Gorge. And I’ll tell you it was worth it.
– 6km in, 6km out 🚶‍♀️
– 1st half of the walk has limited shade, but lots of free water stations 👍
– Sign posted the whole way. No strenuous climbing, just looonng, picturesque 📸
– Mostly croc free (was when we were there, rangers will advise if safe) 🐊

Breathtaking, DO NOT MISS THIS ONE! It’s our favourite!!!
– Easy walk from the car park, which has loos / cafe / benches etc 🚾
– Bottom pool will be busier, head to the top pools for seclusion & EPIC falls! 🏖
– 1.7km walk to the upper pools, or 1km if you take the shorter route 🚶‍♀️
– Lower pools mostly croc free, upper pools are croc free 🐊
– Camp onsite or free camp 10 mins away ⛺️

Lovely warm water, in the centre of town, pretty nice but missing serenity
– Easy walk from the car park, which has loos / cafe / benches etc 🚾
– Series of places to dip in. A bigger pool and a series of smaller 🏖
– Croc free 🐊

We stayed at Discovery Parks Katherine – a little out of town so we felt 100% safe. VERY NEW toilets, incase you’re interested. Located on the road to the gorge. Has a pool to cool off in. Nice.

As we travel Australia on our big lap, we’re coming to the end of our Northern Territory road trip and we can’t wait to show you more of this sunburnt country and it’s coral reefs, 4wd tracks, beach camps, fishing spots, mountains, waterfall gorges and rainforests as we explore Western Australia. Vanlife baby!

Next stop: Lake Argyle then we’re off to free camp at James Price Point, Dampier Peninsula! Lots more travel vlogs coming…

We’d like something to show the grandkids, so we’ve set ourselves the task of making videos of our Australian travel adventures. If you want to follow along and see if we love (or hate) not having a routine or more than 6 metres of living space as we caravan Australia… or if you’re just looking for holiday inspiration via our travel guides, then SUBSCRIBE!
