Jim Jim Falls, Australia


Jim Jim Falls is in the heart of the Australia's Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park. Situated about 240km east-southeast of Darwin.


It plunges about 200m off the escarpment and flows spectacularly in the Wet Season. But the amount of water flowing over Jim Jim Falls depends on seasonal conditions.

The nearest sealed road to Jim Jim Falls is the Kakadu Highway (47.8km away). The first part of the walk is a very steep climb up the side of the hill, but most of the walk is an easy stroll through the bushland along the top of the escarpment.

The walk from the car park to the plunge pools at the bottom of Jim Jim Falls is only 900 metres long. The plunge pools are a Natural habitat of the Saltwater Crocodile. Right at the top of the falls is another large deep plunge pool which is perfect for swimming.

Access to Jim Jim Falls may be seasonally impossible when you are travelling (November to May).
