A mildly challenging walk over rocks and boulders along a creek (with crocodiles in it) to get to a beach area where you can swim and take in the view. The walk in and out is well signed with arrows. You can swim from beach...More
Take a 4x4 and enjoy the drive from the campsite to the falls carpark. Watch out for wallabies on the track. Hike for 2k over rocks, clearly marked and you arrive at a beautiful beachy area. Do not swim in the main billabong until you...More
We didn't go for a swim but lots of others did. Very nice scenery and very relaxing. Not far to walk from the carpark and did have some shaded areas. Remember the fly repelland as well as sunscreen when visiting this site.
We loved our visit here but I would only recommend the track in if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle as it’s pretty rough in places
It’s then a pretty challenging walk over boulders to the swimming hole and waterfall but well worth it...More
We self drive to Jim Jim falls and walked to the plunge pools. We are in our 60s. We drove from Jabiru at 9 am and got to the pool at 12, so keep in mind this takes a long time to get there. The...More
Self drove 4wd to Jim Jim, it’s a bumpy trip but enjoyable followed by an adventurous walk over boulders which is all worth it when you reach a beach and swimming hole in a most spectacular location. My 13 and 10 year olds loved the...More

Firstly, if you don’t have a 4WD you have to join a expensive tour and it’s better if you can go at your own pace.
*If you camp- even better- you can travel in the day before and take the 4WD track in and climb...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!
