Easy walk in for fit people, not so good for the very young, old and/or brittle. Very much worth the effort, beautiful water hole, and magic setting. Easy vehicle access at the time we visited as evidenced by several 2wd vehicles in the car park.

The walk was easy for a fit person but a little difficult in the rocky sections for our older less balanced visitors. The pool was one of the best places to swim and the vista along the way continually changed. It was a warm day but the quite shaded areas made it very comfortable. Would do it again if driving...

Fantastic easy walk through swamp and along river bed to get to magical Maguk Gorge. Warmer water here to swim in than other Kakadu gorges as more open. Beautiful place to swim and wasn't as crowded as other Gorges we visited. Kids had fun jumping off the small cliffs into the water. There is also a walk up to the... More

We were expecting a rough ride in given then 4wd only road but it was very easy, just a bit bumpy in parts. The campground is lovely. Very quiet and private with nice fire places and a nice bushland outlook. Toilets not very nice but to be expected. A short drive from the campground to the carpark and a bumpy/rocky... More

This waterhole waterfall is well worth the walk in. Fantastic place for a swim and lunch. Huge black bream are beneath so take your snorkels and goggles.

Dirt road with one rocky, dry creek bed to cross in our 4 WD. Relatively easy 1 km walk to the water fall with some rocky spots involved. The water is beautiful and water hole is large. There is not a large area to place belongings, we placed some things on rocks and hung towels in a tree, it all... More

Easy drive - we had a 4WD and there was one spot that seemed to be a dry creek bed that was a little difficult - I saw that some 2WD had gone through, but it may be a bit rough. Relatively easy walk (compared to Jim Jim) and gorgeous swimming pool with waterfall - water is much warmer that... More

A top spot to visit!! An easy walk in for all ages. Just take care when stepping on the rocks when crossing the creek as it's easy to slip. The waterfall was stunning! Our children, aged 8 and 6, were able to swim easily over to the waterfall... Via the slade rock opposite where you enter the water. Non confident... More

What a fantastic place to visit. Definitely recommend both the walk to the top and bottom of the falls. The water is beautiful, the scenery is beautiful. The walk to the top is ok a little tricky walking over the rocks in parts, the walk to the top is steep but still doable and well worth it. The falls still... More
