Kakadu National Park

Indulge your sense of adventure! In the Jim Jim region you’ll find towering stone escarpments and mighty waterfalls.

It is a special place where you can connect with an ancient land and its Indigenous culture. Take your time to slow down and experience peace and serenity.


Immerse yourself in the wonderful natural surroundings as you navigate physically challenging walking tracks through the rugged stone country to the Arnhem Land Plateau.

Jim Jim Falls features a 2 km return walk through monsoon forest and over boulders to a deep plunge pool or the family-friendly beach pool. During the dry season the waterfall stops flowing around mid July.

Twin Falls Gorge is accessed by a boat shuttle service and a walking track over boulders and sand, and a boardwalk. From the boat you’ll see many fish species, long-necked turtles and maybe the elusive endemic pig-nosed turtle (warradjan).


This part of the park is home to the iconic waterfalls, Jim Jim and Twin Falls. See them by air during the tropical summer when heavy rains fall. Or, hike over boulders to the base of the falls in the dry season when the waters have dried up.

Check the access report for seasonal access information, updated daily.

Scenic flights

In the wet season, make memories with a once-in-a-lifetime scenic flight to see the magnificent waterfalls from above.
