Kakadu National Park

For the experienced bushwalker this is a real find and sublime treat after a hearty walk.

You’ll need to make the climb up the very steep Barrk Marlam track to the plateau above Jim Jim Falls. The walk takes 4-6 hours and should be taken early in the morning when it’s cool.

But if you’re fit and up to it you’ll be rewarded with a well-deserved swim in a deserted paradise high above the falls.

The views here are breathtaking and you’ll feel like you’ve left the rest of the world far, far behind you!

Reach it via the Barrk Marlam walk.
