As with anywhere in Kakadu, you must travel, often along long and dusty corrugated roads, to get to the real gems of this place. Gunlom is one of them. But well worth it. And the hike up to the rock holes up the top of...More

This is a beautiful spot. The only draw back is that it is around 30kms of extremely corrugated road. The maps say you can take 2 wheel drives in which you can, but I wouldn't expect to come out unscathed. It is really a 4...More

the trip to gunlom is hard, 40k offroad to the parking lot and then about 1k up the steep rocky mountain to reach the pool. However, the hike is definitely worth it to enjoy this marvellous infinity pool.

So first the drive! If you’re used to unsealed roads it’s probably fine. If you’re not, it’s 37km of bone shaking corrugated dirt and gravel road. We’d check with the car hire company that we were ok to go so best make sure you do...More

Was recommended by friends to visit. Was not disappointed. The road in was about 35km of corrugated roads which was rough but doable in a standard car. And hey you're in the territory so it's part of the adventure. While near the later half of...More

Driving from Cooinda, Kakadu, down to Katherine we wanted to see the much raved about Gunlom falls and the Infinity pools and it didn't disappoint. Firstly the drive in is a good 20 to 40 minutes over corrugated roads, it pays to let a bit...More
