Jarrangbarnmi (Koolpin) gorge campground
Another of the Mary River region’s beautiful waterfall areas, this is wilderness camping at its absolute finest.
Not far from Gunlom Falls, but well off the beaten track, this camping area is surrounded by rocky ridges, cascades and areas of white sandy beach.
Set up camp beside Koolpin Creek then explore and swim in one of the many plunge pools before relaxing to take in the majesty of Kakadu.
Be mindful that Jarrangbarnmi is a fragile and restricted area with significant natural and cultural values. It is shared with traditional owners and you’ll need to check availability.
You’ll need a permit to bushwalk or camp here
