Jim Jim is definitely the most amazing thing I've seen in the Top End, perhaps on the whole Northern Territory. There's a fun, beautiful (relatively rough) walk through the rocks to get to the base of the waterfall. There's a beach pool close to it which is very cool, and a bit further you find the plunge pool, on the... More

Scenery is just stunning and reflections in the water breathtaking. Bit of an obstacle course to get there over the rocks but well worth it.

A bit of an effort to get there especially if climbing over rocks isn't your thing (like my wife) but it was worth the effort when we finally reached the base of Jim Jim falls and was able to rest and cool off. Got some great photos too of the water and croc trap in the background which added to... More

Wanna see a beauitful falls then Jim Jim is the one. I highly recommend taking your camera, hats and small nibbles for a snack and why not swim and then snack.

Firstly why in the hell would you even bother, litchfield is a much better park. We were very dissapointed on the signage in this park to jim jim falls. If its dry season please put a sign at entry saying no falls this time of year and be honest. Honesty is the best policy. Or you get bad reports like... More

We were on tour with 16 so got driven in by 4WD bus. The walk of 900 metres is challenging with boulder walking require for the last half. The rock face walls at the pool are stunning and the swim makes it all worthwhile. I concur with previous reviewers. Have good grip footwear and be prepared for climbing over boulders.

While there was a lot of whinging on the long arduous 4wd road in... there was silence on the way out! They were exhausted from the hike in. We managed quite fine with one 7 one 5 and one 2 in the backpack (essential!) Well worth the effort!

This is a beautiful place to visit. Whilst the falls were barely trickling due to the Dry, there was plenty of water in the pools to swim in. The walk to the falls is not at all difficult and well worth visit. A great place for a picnic.

This is high clearance 4WD country. We visited Jim Jim Falls after visiting Twin Falls. Sanding track in with some rocky parts, to arrive at parking area with toilets. There is a 900 metre walk into the falls and I would class it as very difficult due to the climbing over bolders at the end. Thank goodness we could swim... More
