We really enjoyed the rock-hopping adventure to reach these falls! Upon reaching the falls, we enjoyed a bracing swim (how is the water so cold up here?!). You can actually swim all the way under the falls, however be careful as you cross slippery rocks. Another example of NT's natural, breathtaking beauty. Pack your picnic and team up this experience... More

I took a tour with Kakadu Gorge tours. The place is spectacular. The fall itself is small at this time of the year but the plunge pool is impressive.

If you end up in the northern territory then Kakadu and Litchfield national parks are not to be missed!! Amazing waterffalls, landscape is just breathtaking! Jim Jim Falls are all about the hike to get there (a bit hard - climbing rocks style) but soooooo worth! Besides the waterfall itself, there is a great little beach area with sand where... More

We went in July dry season which is the best time. Challenging hike up, mainly due to climbing over the rocks towards the end, but you arrive to a beautiful sandy beach and cool watering hole for a lovely swim.

Traveling to Jim Jim Falls via 4 wheel drive vehicle was an adventure in itself. The ride was incredibly bumpy and travel takes at least two hours. Heed the signs, the walk itself is not difficult however once you arrive at the rocks, you must be relatively fit and able to literally rock hop. I definitely increased the difficulty by... More

A scenic flight is a fantastic experience in the wet season when the falls are not accessible from the ground. Clearly you enjoyed the incredible views of the landscape and the crashing water. In the dry season you can walk in to the falls but remember they won’t be in flood then... it’s still beautiful though! The water slows to... More

The sight of Jim Jim falls is spectacular when it is in full spate but you can only see it this way from the air...worth an aerial tour to get a better sense of the escarpment and the water pouring off it. we did this years ago and were very pleased we did. To see the Falls by road you... More
