This picturesque waterfall is one of the finest in Kakadu, and one of the most popular.
Its cascading waters and pristine plunge pools attract many looking to take a spectacular photo or hoping for a refreshing dip.
Boasting a sandy beach and large clear pool at its base, a short walk up the escarpment takes you to a series of smaller rocky pools stretching up into the escarpment. This makes Gunlom a must see and a highlight on the Kakadu bucket list.
Be Crocwise: Swimming
- Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs!
- Kakadu has Crocodile Management Zones to minimise risk to humans. Even in these zones you should be cautious.
- Crocodile warning signs and Crocodile Management Zones are not found everywhere…
