Gunlom Waterfall Creek, Kakadu National Park

4.8
#1 of 11 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.

  • The little Lake of down is very delicious to swim, but if you want to experience something different, you have to climb the mountain and visit the piles at the top of the waterfall. The view is breathtaking. Take the trouble to upstream at hiking. The campsite has no power, but good toilet facilities and EC is nice to have a few days to stay.

  • After a somewhat long walk to get to a beautiful place to bathe. Swimming is too strong a Word. Although the place is really beautiful, it is not completely safe swimming. Not because of the crocodiles. That are not, but because of degladde rocks. When we were here we saw different people plummet. A French set it took even their camera with precious photos. But if you careful operates is the all great!!

  • Gunlom is worth a stay for 2 nights, good amenities and camp grounds. Nice area at the falls to swim with the walk being very easy.
  • Hard climb to the top but totally worth it. Best experience in Kakadu. I'm not fit but still made it. MUST DO! Can do in 2wd bit bumpy.
  • Large camp ground with hot showers and flushing toilets. Lower plunge pool and upper pool are great.
  • Beautiful spot. A morning walk to the top of the falls and a swim in the 'infinity' pools is a must.
  • Great spot, good quality camping and an iconic view
