Gunlom Waterfall Creek, Kakadu National Park

4.8
#1 of 18 in Parks in Kakadu National Park
Cool off with a dip in Gunlom Waterfall Creek. Sitting at the base of Gunlom Falls, a 30-m (100-ft) waterfall in Kakadu National Park, the natural infinity pool provides expansive views over the park's verdant hills. Walk up to the site on a steep path, taking anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. You can go all the way to the top of the falls, which run as a trickle during dry spells and roar after rains, for the most commanding views. The pool makes a cameo in Crocodile Dundee, but no crocodiles actually reside here. Visit at sunset for the most striking scenery.

  • I have been wanting to do this place for a while. A little rough on the 2 wheel drive car but it made it. The walk up is steep but worth the hard slog. Cool down with a nice swim. So worth the trip.  more »
  • Well the drive out from Jabiru is huge. However so worth it. BBQ area could be a little better. You need a 4 wheel drive as the track isn't easy. Pretty rough getting in and you need to take your time...  more »
