So this place is at the end of a fantastic adventure of scrambling across rocks and boulders. Plenty of fun. Then you come to an amazing waterhole, fresh and cold to sooth your sore muscles. Totally lots of fun and a little challenging. Dint wear...More

We were there in August and there was no water fall, but the water hole was plenty of consolation to cool off after a hot and sweaty track up to it. Be warned it’s a very rocky climb and you need to take plenty of...More

The end result is beautiful but unfortunately being a little rushed on the tour, I missed the journey... It's hard going but if you take your time the scenery is worth the effort

I agree with brandasa. I would say the tour is overrated. We did this tour on 1/08/2018. We meant to see Jim Jim falls and Twin falls. At the beginning of the tour we were told Twin falls are closed and we are going to...More

The Jim Jim falls were spectacular- I reckon the clambering over rocks was worth it. What wasn't worth it was doing the Wayoutback tour. We were informed prior to the tour that Twin falls wasn't open- fair enough. But we were reassured that the $175...More

In doing my research so many people said this was the "must do" in the park. It's nice, but I don't think it's a must do. It makes for a long day from Jabiru. We went with Wayoutback Australia as we did not have a...More

Jim Jim Falls was our first swimming stop on our recent Intrepid camping tour. The falls are spectacular, even in the Dry. The pools below are clear and gloriously refreshing. Take a swimming mask or goggles, there are plenty of freshwater fish to see. When...More

Fairly tricky rock climb to the falls but well worth it. Beautiful area and swimming hole. Make sure you don't go too late (like we did) so that you have time to swim and relax by the falls.

Wear joggers and don’t rush your footing! Somewhat challenging walk but sooo worth it. There was not a lot of water falling but the pure, refreshing green water was great and I could have stayed on the sandy beach in the warm sun forever. Monstering,...More

Bit of rock hopping required to get to the lower pool. Then a real scramble over large rocks to get to the deep dark pool at the bottom of the falls. Beautiful swimming spot. Highly recommended.

Kakadu is very civilised and they bend over backward to cater to the tourist. We went for 3 days and stayed 8...and could have stayed a month. You can see a lot with a standard car, and yes absolute access. The road are... More
