Kakadu National Park

This splendid waterfall and swimming hole is a bit of a walk but well worth the effort.

Water cascades into small luscious pools within the gorge where you can take a break and enjoy the beautiful wildlife and surroundings.

Boulder Creek is considered a perfect place for a swim in the tropical summer where you’re likely to have it all to yourself.

Tip: Take plenty of water and snacks for this walk and swim.

Reach via Yurmikmik walks.
