We had only intended visiting Gunlom Falls but Maguk came very highly recommended to us so we made the time to visit and glad we did. Unlike Gunlom, where the base of the falls is only a few hundred metres away from the carpark....it is...More

Beautiful clear water in Maguk Gorge. One of my favourites on this trip. Water is clear and clean. Nice refreshing dip. The walk in is ok, a few boulder scrambles but not too bad. Your feet might get a bit wet on the way in....More

We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Maguk. Recommend arriving early to get a good camping spot. Early morning walk to waterfall and swim was invigorating. Didn’t enjoy the idiots jumping off rocks!

The walk to the water hole is well worth it. The water was cold but appreciated after a hot day. It wasn't difficult to walk to the falls
