Gunlom Waterfall Creek, Kakadu National Park

#1 of 8 in Parks in Kakadu National Park
Waterfall Nature / 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.

  • Short drive (to my standard) from Jabiru (177 km), with 40 km of gravel roads (so it is actually 80-km gravel for return trip). Very well-equipped camping ground. Water is just too cold (felt like ICE...  more »
  • A bone-jarring 35 km drive across corrugated gravel road to this place. We let ourselves down when we realised that the climb to the infinity pool was beyond our physical capabilities. It is very stee...  more »

  • 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.
  • Just beat the short climb to the top of the falls and enjoy the afternoon swimming in the various, beautiful rock pools on top. Swim and enjoy the amazing view at the same time! Worth the 25k drive of unsealed road!
  • One word... Stunning. Expensive to camp @ $20pp/night however the walk to to the top and the view is great. 2WD accessible during the dry season!
  • Fantastic place to stay and a wonderful "Infintity" pool that looks out over the plains of Kakadu.
  • In my opinion a must see in Kakadu. Stunning view from the upper pool.
