Jatbula Trail, Northern Territory - May 2020
About the adventure
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 and spirit of the country. 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, rocky wilderness. With numerous swimming holes along the way and star-filled night skies, this trip is not to be missed!
What Wild Women On Top provides
When you join a Wild Women On Top adventure, you become part of an incredible team of women, training and hiking together to maximise everybody’s enjoyment and success. Wild Women On Top support you to get the most out your Wild Adventure, making it a truly transformational challenge.
Wild Women On Top provides a Wild Women Coach who trains and supports your team, shares Wild Women culture and traditions, assists you in your preparation, and accompanies you on your adventure.
We also provide an exclusive itinerary tailored to exactly what women want, prioritising magic moments, delicious food, natural exhilaration, and confidence building challenges. We also take a T.E.A.M (Together Everyone Achieves More) approach to adventure, training, and preparation to ensure all your teammates are perfectly prepared and fit for the adventure (that means you must be, too!). If there’s no Trek Training in your location, you can prepare with Wild Women’s 12-week online training program, join a Coastrek Team Trekking Challenge in your nearest capital city, and check in with your coach remotely. Everyone must be an Adventure Member of Wild Women On Top so you’re guaranteed your teammates understand our culture and have like-minded goals.
We also provide you with a private Facebook group to connect you with the Wild Women Community and your team as well as give you direct access to your coach. You will also get a complimentary copy of “How To Prepare for World Class Treks” by Di Westaway.
