Jim Jim Falls, Kakadu National Park

4.5
#2 of 18 in Parks in Kakadu National Park
See the largest waterfall in Kakadu National Park, the Jim Jim Falls. The near vertical cliffs form a spectacular, steep 200 m (660 ft) drop for water that overflows from the rocky plateau top’s creeks and rivers onto floodplains below. In this dry and harsh environment, water volume varies from dramatic fall to a trickle in the dry season. You can access the falls only during the dry season and by 4WD. Camp in the area near to Jim Jim to see why the isolated and remote falls made it to the World Heritage List.

  • A lovely walk to Jim Jim, a bit of scrambling included, when you get there it is peaceful and a gorgeous little beach with stunning water. It has a shallow and a deeper pool but both are a must see!  more »
