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.

  • After a moderate walk up a steep path beside the falls, you arrive an infinity-like pool on the edge of the main drop of the falls, overlooking the plains of this beautiful country  more »
  • The road was (very) long for us to get there from the "Aurora Kakadu" that we had to leave, and to leave to return to Darwin. The ascent on foot was short but steep, intense and tiring. But what exceptional site and what amazing view at the top! One of the highlights of our 3 week trip to Australia (Northern Territory).

  • This walk is fairly steep but reasonable. Wear boots to protect your ankles, water and bathers for swimming. Infinity pool is fabulous and scenery beautiful, nice spot to picnic and relax a while. No ...  more »

  • This is one of the best places in Kakadu for swimming. The views while you swim in the natural infinity pool are something you will remember forever. The gravel road in can be a bit hit and miss. Depends on if they have graded it recently but if not it can add more than 20 minutes to your trip. Take it easy and you will be fine
  • Picturesque and worth a visit. Great spot for a picnic on the grass or the tables provided. Relax and have a swim. Easy access with amenities.
  • Large swimming plunge pool at the bottom, a steep walk to the top that you would not miss! Beautiful swimming holes with a couple of waterfalls. Amazing views from the top over Kakadu!
  • 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.
