This is well worth the hike to get to. Start off early in the morning and you will probably be the first there. Great swimming and beautiful photo opportunities. 10/10 breathtaking

If you visit Kakadu in Darwin, it is a must to visit the Jim Jim falls which is an iconic part of the National Park. We had visited in August this year which is the dry season and the falls stop running. The most challenging...More

We visited the JimJim Falls during the dry season and the waterfall did not flow. But even without the waterfall this place is simply amazing. For the parking there are multiple hikes and we took the one leading along the plunge pool directly to the...More

In the dry season the waterfall is not flowing but it is still a very impressive gorge. The walk up from the car park is not that long but it is very rocky and becomes quite a scramble as you get closer to the waterfall....More

This is a drought year, Jim Jim Falls were dry, maybe a trickle of water still on the rock face. Expect a rough trail reaching the falls. Highlight for us was a cooperative Forest Kingfisher along the road.

This is without a beautiful spot and swimming in a pool contained in basically a large amphitheater is pretty unique. However, the pool rarely benefits from sun so is relatively cold and dark and when we were there in September there was no waterfall. The...More

So this place is at the end of a fantastic adventure of scrambling across rocks and boulders. Plenty of fun. Then you come to an amazing waterhole, fresh and cold to sooth your sore muscles. Totally lots of fun and a little challenging. Dint wear...More

We were there in August and there was no water fall, but the water hole was plenty of consolation to cool off after a hot and sweaty track up to it. Be warned it’s a very rocky climb and you need to take plenty of...More

The end result is beautiful but unfortunately being a little rushed on the tour, I missed the journey... It's hard going but if you take your time the scenery is worth the effort
