The hike up to the Infinity Pools are significantly hard. It is all uneven, rocky & steep. Having said that, I was able to make it despite a partially fused ankle & our three year old made it with a little help. The pools are...More

We visited in the early dry season. Two wheel drive accessible but four wheel drive preferable to reach this stunning spot in the Kakadu National Park. Whilst we didn’t camp this would make a lovely spot for camping as there are good facilities including natural...More

Google got us worried and we almost didn’t visit when it was suggested a trip to Gunlom would take us 3 hours! Luckily, the rangers told us it’s 3 hours return. We drove in a 2WD to Gunlom from Cooinda lodge, leaving early so we...More

I have been wanting to do this place for a while. A little rough on the 2 wheel drive car but it made it. The walk up is steep but worth the hard slog. Cool down with a nice swim. So worth the trip.

Well the drive out from Jabiru is huge. However so worth it. BBQ area could be a little better. You need a 4 wheel drive as the track isn't easy. Pretty rough getting in and you need to take your time. Lot's of people not...More

Walked about one kilometre up a steep climb but worth it. Spectacular views over Kakadu plus the most tranquil and refreshing pools. Highly recommendable!

The place is not easy to reach. You must drive around 35 Km on a unsealed road to arrive there. Close to the car park there is a lagoon where you can swim and the view of the waterfall is amazing. There is a picnic...More

After a moderate walk up a steep path beside the falls, you arrive an infinity-like pool on the edge of the main drop of the falls, overlooking the plains of this beautiful country

This walk is fairly steep but reasonable. Wear boots to protect your ankles, water and bathers for swimming. Infinity pool is fabulous and scenery beautiful, nice spot to picnic and relax a while. No facilities so remove own rubbish

Hi there, we had a 2WD and it was ok but a 4WD would cope a lot better. If you haven’t committed to the car yet, get the 4WD as it provides a lot more options for you in Kakadu, even if you don’t have experience & don’t plan... More
