Kakadu National Park

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.

Situated near some of Kakadu’s most famous plunge pools, Gunlom campground is a popular location for a cool dip on a hot day.

Campground facilities provide for a comfortable stay and each morning you’ll wake to the call of lorikeets, honey eaters, galahs and kookaburras.

Just minutes from the lower plunge pool and waterfall, a short hike of about 450 m takes you above the falls where one of nature’s most spectacular infinity pools offers breathtaking views of southern Kakadu.

If you’re up bright and early, try the 2.5 km return walk leading to Murrill Billabong and the South Alligator River.
