Twin Falls gorge
The walk to the base of the gorge is currently closed for a major infrastructure upgrade. Experience the falls from above on the Twin Falls plateau walk.
One of Kakadu’s big two waterfalls, Twin Falls gorge has a split cascade that plunges from a 150 m high cliff face into a deep pool.
In the dry season, the waterfall slows to a trickle and you can walk right to the base of the imposing escarpment.
Along the way ancient secrets of the escarpment will be revealed and amazing aquatic life in the crystal clear waters highlighted. After you dock, a stroll along the floating boardwalk showcases the grandeur of the falls.
You should pack a picnic lunch and soak up the atmosphere on the white sandy beach at the base of the gorge.
The walk to the base of the gorge is currently closed for a major infrastructure upgrade. However you can experience the falls from above on the Twin Falls plateau walk – a challenging 6 km return hike with jaw-dropping views down into the gorge and across to remote, unspoilt wilderness.
Tip: You’ll need a 4WD with a snorkel to cross Jim Jim Creek and access Twin Falls gorge. Check your car rental conditions before driving off-road. Be cautious driving on dirt roads and view the Kakadu Access Report.
