Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions apply

Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.

All visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.

This dazzling waterfall spills from steep gorge walls into a pristine natural pool.

A short monsoon rainforest walk delivers you to this stunning location where lush vegetation and beautiful wildlife is found.

Rainbow pitas, emerald doves and spangled drongos are common here while endemic Anbinik trees – the biggest trees in Stone Country – find refuge in the forest.

You emerge near the end of the trail into a bouldered river section.

From here you can continue on the marked trail across the river to the main plunge pool set in an immense stone amphitheatre.

Reach it via the Maguk walk, an hour’s drive south of Cooinda.

Maguk isn't open right now, but it's expected to reopen on Saturday 5 June 2021.

Current status: Seasonal closure.
