4.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Nice 4wd to reach site and great bushwalk to falls. Choose your season to visit; mid-late dry season sees no falls, only plunge pool. Beautiful though.
  • Nice bush drive to the falls. The walking track to the beach and base of the falls were abit challenging for an unfit member of our party. It would have been great to see water over the falls if we had come a little later in the season. Still worth the effort just make sure you have good foot wear and water.
  • awsome
  • Me and my friends Jim & Jim went here. Was great.
  • Well worth the trip, especially if you have a 4x4 as its a good drive with a good destination. If you have the time, do the hike up to the top, but be careful, the track fades out to nothing at the top. Well worth it though. Can only get in during the winter when it's dry.
