I last visited Kakadu 10 yrs ago and enjoyed the spectacular views from the pools above. With a 10kg toddler to lug up, i decided to stayin the billabong below. It was beautiful.

Great spot, great swimming. I’d recommend leaving your caravan at another location. Corrugated roads into Gunlom aren’t van friendly. Most people (locals?) seem to be in tents or camper trailers.

For a quick walk up it is 15-20 min up. Not too bad. Steep, so if bad knees or poor shape do skip. Worth a good view if you are able. Can jump in or just put your feet in.

Loved it here. Nearly 2 hour drive from Cooinda for us. Loved the Swimming up the top. Climb up was certainly worth it, probably don’t wear thongs.

Don’t believe google maps. This road only takes maximum 45 minutes each way. It is so beautiful at the top infinity pool. A must see in Kakadu. Take a picnic in the green grass car park and head up the hill with snacks and water....More

This was on my bucket list and so glad I have ticked it off. Just gorgeous. A collection of pools with beautiful views over Kakadu. Try to go nice and early in the morning before the crowds get there. Just magic.

Beautiful pool, the waterfall only running gently. A tough steep climb to the to where there’s more pools. We camped here, very busy though. Toilets and showers.

Easily accessible area, a magical combination of waterfalls and serene plunge pool with great picnic area amongst shady trees. Fantastic for a day picnic here with plenty to do. Come to Gunlom means you must make this fairly steep 2km return hike to the top...More

This is the place to come. A pretty tough scramble of 40 minutes up a hillside takes you to a croc-free natural infinity pool with stunning views. Come here but avoid the hottest parts of the day!
