Located in the Jardine River National Park, Fruit Bat Falls provides a refreshing break from the dust. You can swim in the massive pool under the falls. The falls are created by the waters of Eliot Creek cascading off a large slab of rock and dropping down to the pool below. This creates a very wide curtain of waterfalls. The falls are not very high but the width and the huge pool below are not only beautiful but easy for large numbers of people to enjoy together.

There are also pockets of holes in the rocky shelf above the falls in which you can swim too.

Can get very crowded in the peak season here but there are other less known swimming holes if you prefer to get wet.

Day use only with picnic tables, toilets and a timber walkway along Eliot Creek are provided at Fruit Bat Falls. Camping is not permitted here. Campers must use Eliot Falls Camping Area.
