Spectacular all year - see this area from the ground in the dry season, and from the air in the wet season.The Jim Jim Area is only accessible by 4WD during the dry season. Visitors can explore the spectacular and challenging walks or take a boat shuttle ride to Twin Falls over crystal clear waters (charges apply). Scenic flights are also very popular, and allow visitors to see the spectacular Jim Jim Falls, which are in full flow only during the wet season

I did a 3 days tour with Wayoutback to Kakadu and Litchfield and we visited Jim Jim Falls. The walk was quite hard with a lot of rock scrambling but we enjoyed it. I went for a swim all the way to the water falls....More

The Falls are amazing - we took the scenic flight to see them! We were super lucky you could see them in March in full flow.

July 2017: Awesome, spectacular and definitely worth the hike in. Wear comfortable walking shoes in and change into those slip on aqua booties or old joggers for the walk across the rocks and in to the water. It's refreshing to say the least but one...More

A lovely walk to Jim Jim, a bit of scrambling included, when you get there it is peaceful and a gorgeous little beach with stunning water. It has a shallow and a deeper pool but both are a must see!

Viewed these falls from a light plane - pretty impressive with good flow of water at this time of the wet season.

Andrew from The Scenic Flight Company Kakadu took us out over Kakadu, did a couple of turns around Jim Jim to admire and get a tonne of photos. Absolutely gorgeous. You cannot get in there by vehicle in the wet season.

Beautiful walk that is quite easy to start with but requires climbing over large boulders for the end part. This would be challenging for those that are not fit and agile. The falls were not running but nevertheless this place is put magic. There is...More
