I did a 3 days tour with Wayoutback to Kakadu and Litchfield and we visited Jim Jim Falls. The walk was quite hard with a lot of rock scrambling but we enjoyed it. I went for a swim all the way to the water falls....More

The Falls are amazing - we took the scenic flight to see them! We were super lucky you could see them in March in full flow.

A lovely walk to Jim Jim, a bit of scrambling included, when you get there it is peaceful and a gorgeous little beach with stunning water. It has a shallow and a deeper pool but both are a must see!

Viewed these falls from a light plane - pretty impressive with good flow of water at this time of the wet season.

Andrew from The Scenic Flight Company Kakadu took us out over Kakadu, did a couple of turns around Jim Jim to admire and get a tonne of photos. Absolutely gorgeous. You cannot get in there by vehicle in the wet season.

Beautiful walk that is quite easy to start with but requires climbing over large boulders for the end part. This would be challenging for those that are not fit and agile. The falls were not running but nevertheless this place is put magic. There is...More

What a walk to get to the end, a hard rough hike over lots of rocks but well worth the hike. We also stayed at the garamarra camp ground and that was great, a bit rough but great with the ranger telling us stories all...More

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
