17 Mile Falls is a waterfall on the Seventeen Mile Creek in the north of the Northern Territory, Australia situated about 250km southeast of Darwin (show me). 17 Mile Falls is at an elevation of approximately 247m above sea level.
We estimate that 17 Mile Falls is between 30m and 33m high. This estimate is based on analysis of the topographic profile around the waterfall and may not be an accurate figure for the total fall of water seen if viewing the falls.
The nearest populated place is the town of Katherine which is 40km away with a population of around 6,700 (show me a map with 17 Mile Falls and Katherine).
The nearest sealed road to 17 Mile Falls is the Stuart Highway (36.4km away).
