Do yourself a favour. Go here and bring your bathers! After trooping around the sites in 40 degree temperatures, full sun and near 100% humidity that Kakadu during the build up is famous for, this place is a god send. The track in is unsealed but you can do it in a normal car no probs. A 5-10 minute walk... More

To see the levels of our existence in the walls of the canyon is inspiring and a real indication of how long we've been on this planet.

Beautiful swimming & spectacular waterfall. So glad we took the time to see it & very happy to have had swimwear & worn some shoes. Nice walk along the creek too. A few rocks to get past but walk wasn't really that long & absolutely worth it!

Maguk Gorge is one of the places where you can take a swim. It is a nice walk to get there and the gorge itself is nice & peacefull.

On a day trip to Maguk and Gunlom, enjoyed the 15 min walk to the falls at Maguk. Interesting attractive walk, some boulders ( so not good if mobility an issue but no climbing) and a lovely swim in the gorge pool at the end ( fortunately free of crocodiles so we were assured!!). Well worth a visit.

The waterhole is the prize at the end of the track. There is a large number of rocks and boulders to overcome. Our tour guide ensured we were wearing good enclosed walking shoes, it is easy to slip on the rocks otherwise. There was a number of people swimming when we reached the end. We swam out to the waterfall... More

If you have a bit of extra time then this is worth the effort. About 50k out of Cooinda it's an easy drive to the turn off and then 10k of corrugated road. Just take your time. In the dry a 2wd can do easily. The gorge is a short easy walk.

Loved the walk and also the swimming hole at the end. Nice easy walk with plenty of shade. One of the best swimming spots in Kakadu.

To sum up maguk in one word , spectacular ! I had no idea what this place was , my husband had done the research and said we should stop here and take a look. So we parked the car and asked someone in the car park how long it takes , it's prob over a km, on a track... More
