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.

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
We were there early (8.30am), so on the way going, it was still cool although the boulder scrambling I found reasonably difficult as my sense of balance isn't great. However, the beach at the top was a lovely surprise and swimming in the pools great!...More

Kakadu is very civilised and they bend over backward to cater to the tourist. We went for 3 days and stayed 8...and could have stayed a month. You can see a lot with a standard car, and yes absolute access. The road are excellent. A4X4 will give access to a few more areas but in two days no need. In the Darwin info centre buy your pass and pick up the brochure for what the pass covers. The talks and tours are amazing and free. I must recommend the Animal Track Safari, the Yellow River, the art gallery up in Ubirr and at Nourlangie. It is like any other National Park just owned by our indigenous and therefore much more care is taken of the environment. Its stunning!
