The tour, which took most of the day, was to Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls. Access to Jim Jim Falls is 4wd only, and it's probably better to do it as part of a tour. Once you get to the car park, you are faced with a one kilometre "walk" to the plunge pool (plunge being where the falling... More

The drive in to Jim Jim Falls is an adventure in itself; do not try it without a 4WD! We met a couple of clowns in a beaten up Ford Falcon who had tried to get in and were bogged in sand, so let that be a lesson! The walk in to the falls is pleasant, with some boulder hopping... More

Wish we had of taken the turn off to the beach pool, just looked so beautiful from our rocky perch looking across from the plunge pool. Would love to see the falls in full flow.

We walked in and yes we climbed over the huge boulders up near the falls - my 7 year old even had a quick dip at the beach pool - although with water at only 16 degrees there was no way we were going in LOL A tough walk for some people who had injuries or disabilities but a lot... More

Inaccessible due to it being the wet season except from the air so we did a scenic flight over the top of Jim Jim and Twin Falls which I would highly recommend. Quite a sight!

Being born in the territory camping is something we do every dry season. This was my first time to jim jim and I was instantly impressed by the camp grounds, heaps of camp sights with fire pits and table and chairs. It wasn't to hard to find fire wood but possibly stop on your drive in to pick up wood... More

After a quiet a trip on a dirt road, you do have to walk & climb to reach the falls. The small creek along the route that you need to climb looks tempting for a swim but be carefull, the creek is not fed by waterfall so crocs might be around despite the efforts of the governement to keep the...
