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.

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.

There was too much water flowing to access from the ground so we took a flight over these falls. Wonderful.

Of the many lovely places in Kakadu NP, none beats Jim Jim Falls (don't get it mistaken with Jim Jim Billabong)! No easy words to describe it, you need to see it for yourself. Unfortunately, is a little off the beaten track, so you do...More

Wow! An incredibly challenging walk over huge rocks and boulders. Not slippery on a dry day. But for me (who doesn’t do this type of thing often) it was challenging but not impossible. My 72 year old mum was fine. Our guide and group were...More

After an hour's walk and scrambling over rocks you make it to the jim jim waterfall and beach. A great place to cool off and spend an afternoon

The gravel road getting there. A little rough. The windy bush track after the gravel road. Relaxing. The 900 mtr???? trek and rock climb. Challenging. The falls and beach area when you get there. BLOODY AWESOME.

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
