Kakadu is full of beautiful nature spots, Gunlom is definitely a highlight. Beautiful waterfall and pool at the bottom of the cliff and gorgeous infinity pools at the top. It is a short but steep walk up to the top, locals do it in flip...More

If you are heading to Kakadu, Gunlom Falls is a must do. We also recommend 100% taking a 4x4. There are 2wd tracks aswell but it really limits what you can see especially when paying to enter the park you want to maximise your stay....More

Leaving the motel at five in the morning, bleary-eyed and yawning, we were oddly thrilled to be awake so early. We were on our way to Gunlom falls, and it was to be my first visit. 18 years in the NT, and I'd never been...More

Like so much of the NT, Gunlom falls is not easy to get to without a 4WD. But the effort it takes to get there makes it all the better. There is a large pool at the bottom of the waterfall, although we were warned...More

As with anywhere in Kakadu, you must travel, often along long and dusty corrugated roads, to get to the real gems of this place. Gunlom is one of them. But well worth it. And the hike up to the rock holes up the top of...More

This is a beautiful spot. The only draw back is that it is around 30kms of extremely corrugated road. The maps say you can take 2 wheel drives in which you can, but I wouldn't expect to come out unscathed. It is really a 4...More

the trip to gunlom is hard, 40k offroad to the parking lot and then about 1k up the steep rocky mountain to reach the pool. However, the hike is definitely worth it to enjoy this marvellous infinity pool.
