Spectacular all year - see this area from the ground in the dry season, and from the air in the wet season.The Jim Jim Area is only accessible by 4WD during the dry season. Visitors can explore the spectacular and challenging walks or take a boat shuttle ride to Twin Falls over crystal clear waters (charges apply). Scenic flights are also very popular, and allow visitors to see the spectacular Jim Jim Falls, which are in full flow only during the wet season

We just returned from our first Top End self-drive adventure where we found every journey as great as the destination in this magic part of the world. Visited Jim Jim Falls as part of the Gagudju 4WD Adventure Tour as you need 4WD to get there. Tracks are long and picturesque. The 'walks' test your muscle, agility, fortitude and problem... More

Fairly rough road,53 kms of dirt, last 10 kms, quite sandy.Worth the drive, challenging 900metre walk from the car park, lots of climbing over big boulders, but lovely view of the falls and sandy beach at the end, people were swimming there.Supposed to be croc free.

We travelled on the Spirit of Kakadu commercial trip to Jim Jim Falls (and Twin Falls). Here is what the brochures do not tell you: Long drives to collect the passengers, including a lengthy side trip to one of the camps (and poorly coordinated transfers with guests from various resorts) Bumpy trips along unsealed side roads in large vehicles designed...

This is difficult for me to rate as 3/4 stars cos I LOVE waterfalls AND climbing. I came here as part of a 4WD adventure tour. Was informed that Jimjim falls only can be seen from the air during the wet season, and during the dry season it will be dry. For me, climbing all those rocks for about an... More

This leg from Jim Jim falls car park was more arduous than Twin falls and there was no water running at Jim Jim falls only a waterfall and no shade. Half way way a lovely viewing area which looked up to falls and was a lovely shady haven if not wanting to tackle the rocks to reach falls.

4wd only a 2wd would easy get the first 45km but the last part (maybe 10km?) has deep sand is very narrow and not a lot of places to pull off and let others pass. Even more difficult with the tour guide trucks driving up and down. The waterfall is not flowing but still great scenery and a fantastic swim... More

This place can only be accessed by 4WD followed by a "difficult to very difficult" hike (supposedly 900m from the picnic spot but seems longer!). The hike requires sturdy footwear and the last section is essentially a climb over challenging boulders - take plenty of fluids. However the spectacular rock walls and plunge pool were worth the effort (although disappointingly... More

Awe-inspiringly beautiful - you have to earn this one : a 4wd with river crossing and a difficult hike and scramble over boulders earns you access to this magic Cliffs and rock pool

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.
