Overview

Spectacular all year - see this area from the ground in the dry season, and from the air in the wet season.The Jim Jim Area is only accessible by 4WD during the dry season. Visitors can explore the spectacular and challenging walks or take a boat shuttle ride to Twin Falls over crystal clear waters (charges apply). Scenic flights are also very popular, and allow visitors to see the spectacular Jim Jim Falls, which are in full flow only during the wet season

Our group of sexagenarians relished the rock climbing challenge to reach our first safe swimming hole in Kakadu. Spectacular scenery and oh so inviting water.

Most of the road to Jim Jim is a corrugated dirt road easily accessible by 2wd but the last 10kms from the campground onwards is 4x4 only. You have to walk 900meters from the car park to get to the falls, which involves climbing over...More

Jim Jim Falls are only suitable for people who are happy to basically rockclimb over boulders for 40 minutes each way, to discover the pools is almost inaccessible and the water dirty. Blame it on the low water flow over the falls, but it was...More
