A good twenty - twenty five minute walk from the car park makes it all the more worthwhile, as does the climb to the top of the falls - relatively easy - which, apart from the views affords you the pick of half a dozen natural deep swimming holes to plunge into or just lounge in.
Moreover - just an hour or so from Jabiru, although would be wise to take an off road equipped vehicle, enough water and a snack.

Fabulous scenery as we scrambled our way to the Maguk Gorge. Only disappointment was the pristine beauty was marred by someone feeling the need for a cigarette. You walk so far for the joy of nature and then can't enjoy the fresh air . Come on smokers- think twice. Swimming in the cold water was a must as we were so hot when we arrived.

FANTASTIC!! 10km bumpy dirty road to get there and then about a 600m walk across some pretty rocky areas, BUT when you get there you are greeted with a fantastic almost circular gorge, waterfall and pristine crystal clear water. A perfect place for a swim. So perfect we came back a second day. Bring a noodle or a float of some kind because it is just great to be able to float and relax. There are plenty of smaller pools to have a dip in on the walk back as well, although best to avoid those nearer the car park!! They look inviting but I reckon the crocs might think that as well !!!

Maguk Gorge was the highlight of our visit to the NT. The walk in is a fabulous tropical surround and the waterfall and pool are stunning. It was an absolute delight to swim in this pristine place.
