I cannot find anything in Settings > Mouse and Touchpad for the change. My X11 configs do not work here because I am using Wayland.

OS: Linux Debian Stretch 9.1
Gnome: 3.22
Wayland: 1.12


Install gnome-control-center than open it.

Select Devices from the side Navigation bar than select Mouse & Touchpad.

There you will find the option to toggle Natural Scrolling

    I think the term Natural Scrolling is confusing. Who has decided that the On option is natural scrolling? - - Turning it off just reverse the direction. I would call it instead Natural Scrolling Direction. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Oct 11 '17 at 15:02

In my case I just had to:

Settings -> Mouse & Touchpad -> Mouse -> Natural Scrolling -> Off
Settings -> Mouse & Touchpad -> Touchpad -> Natural Scrolling -> Off
Settings -> Mouse & Touchpad -> Tap to Click -> On
