Swimming at Gunlom
Gunlom is one of Kakadu’s most magical places, where gorgeous plunge pools combine with spectacular views to create some of the park’s most picturesque vistas.
There is a large crystal clear plunge pool at the base of the falls and spectacular smaller pools at the top.
A short hike up the cliff path brings you to panoramic views of the southern reaches of the park. Walk a little further and you’ll find plunge pools at the top of Gunlom Falls and discover nature’s finest infinity pool.
Slip into the cool fresh water for a luxurious dip surrounded by idyllic tropical scenery.
When you’ve had enough, recline on the warm rocks and gaze out over southern Kakadu where lush landscape meets endless blue sky.
Tip: Please be cautious while walking around the pools above the falls as the polished rock can be slippery.
Reach via Gunlom Falls Walk.
