Such a beautiful place. Crystal clear water to swim in after the walk in. You can look up at the cliffs for hours. Beautiful

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

If you are going to the spectacular Twin Falls anyway then you might as well come here for a swim (no swimming at Twin). But if you aren't going to Twin (e.g. because your hire vehice isn't permitted) then would I recommend bouncing all the way down here in a 4WD to Jim Jim? Probably not. The falls aren't running...

The walk up Jim Jim falls is not an easy one, but it is well worth it. The swim in the plunge pool definitely cools you off at the end of your journey after a hard walk. The view to the cliffs above is the biggest you will ever see. The first half of the walk is easy going, but... More

The walk from the carpark to the plunge pool is strenuous, requiring the hiker to clamber through, around and over a number of large boulders. We took the Gagudju "Adventure Tour" with some other travelers who understimated the physical demands and were not able to reach the falls. They got close enough to enjoy and outstanding view, but it could... More

To get to the falls you need to 4 wheel drive over rough terrain including going thru a creek (60cm deep when I was there). The hike in is also challenging as you traverse large rock piles which can make it difficult for those that are not sure of foot. At the end you are well rewarded though. The falls... More

Day trip to JimJim from Jabiru - a long journey along the great escarpment then 4-wheel drive over a very bumpy road. Only 900m walk to falls - but the walk was up/down and clambering over huge boulders. When you arrive however it is all worthwhile. A huge circular canyon with a 'pool' 300m or so in diameter - and... More
