Kakadu National Park

Indulge your sense of adventure in the Jim Jim region, home to towering stone escarpments and mighty waterfalls.

This is a special place to connect with an ancient land and its Indigenous culture. Take your time to experience the peace and serenity of this remarkable landscape.


This part of the park is home to the iconic Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls.

These spectacular waterfalls are best seen by air during the tropical summer, when heavy rains send huge volumes of water crashing into the gorge below. During the dry season, you can hike over boulders to the base of the falls.

Check our access report for the latest access information, updated daily.


Immerse yourself in rugged natural surroundings as you navigate challenging walking tracks 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 family-friendly beach pool. The waterfall flows from the start of the tropical summer until mid-July.

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


Spend the night at the nearby Garnamarr Campground, which has great views of the Arnhem Land Escarpment.


The area can be accessed on a guided tour with friendly, experienced guides. Day tours are available departing from Cooinda.
