The Gunlom walking track to the lookout and pools above the falls is closed at the request of the Traditional Owners until further notice.
Please do not attempt to access these areas.
Gunlom plunge pool, day use area and campground are open to all visitors.
Thanks for your understanding.
This picturesque waterfall is one of the finest in Kakadu, and one of the most popular.
Its cascading waters and pristine plunge pools attract people looking for a refreshing dip (or just some spectacular photographs).
From the sandy beach and large clear pool at the base, a short, steep walk takes you to a series of smaller rocky pools stretching up into the escarpment.
Gunlom is a must-see and a highlight of everyone’s 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.
