Gunlom Waterfall Creek, Kakadu National Park
(4.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you like hiking and also swimming then Gunlom is the perfect option for a day out. The carpark area has toilets, WiFi, and picnic areas. The walk to the top of the swimming holes is about 30 minute...  more »
  • Long trip from from Jabiru, around 150 km. In October it is not a waterfall at all. Unpaved road but 4WD isn't required. Nothing to do really there. It's not worthy the time.
