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

First of all dont forget you need a 4WD Bush waking mountain climbing swimming and watching amazing view for sure its exactly what you want to do when you go outdoor. I highly recommend this place . Me and my friends enjoyed everything that was there . You will never forget the palace especially if the waterfalls are running.

It was definitely worthwhile. We went on a day-trip with Spirit of Kakadu and Ian was our guide. We really enjoyed his easy-going nature and the lunch provided was awesome. The Twin Falls was our first stop and is easily more beautiful than Jim Jim, but you cannot swim there. Jim Jim is swimmable and very cold, but after tramping... More

This crown of Kakado National Park can be best reached on a 4WD and a challenging 1km hike over large rocks. Stunning views of this 200m natural fall with a large pool makes the hike a worthy effort. I have a great time of laps swimming (more than 100m one way) in the cold but tolerable water during the dry... More

The road from the camp ground was slow going, but not difficult - 4WD only. The 900m hike over some very big rocks to the falls was not hard when it was dry. It started to rain after we arrived at the base of the falls though, and the hike back was simply treacherous! Very slippery and so very easy... More

It's a bit of a hike to get here...60mins along a rough corrugated road then another 60mins along a slow windy track. The walk in is challenging but extremely rewarding as u close in on the main falls. The sheer height of the cliffs is impressive. The only downsize was the lack of water coming over the escarpment. The wet... More

Took the plunge and got to the base of the falls. Hard going ( for me with short legs) the last 200 Mtrs or so on the way up, but easier scrambling the big rocks coming back. Beautiful scenery

Jim Jim falls is a long rough drive in, 4x4 only, long drop toilets before walking track to fall, need to wear good gym shoes, lots of steep sharp rocks to climb over, about 900m worth, some rocks very slippery, be careful n take your time. Beautiful place to swim, also very cold, at the end it's sandy like a... More

Not so easy to access, you need a 4wd and walk about 20 or 30 min on rocks to see the beauty! A huge pool on the right with beaches and clear water. And a big pool at the bottom of the falls. You can also walk to the top, will take about 2hours one way, I didn't do it... More

Jim Jim Falls would have to be one of the most beautiful spots I've ever seen. We went at the beginning of dry season so the river was low enough to cross and the falls were still flowing. This seems to be the best time of year for Kakadu. Having said that we were unable to get to Twin Falls... More
