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

Do it if you can. It's somewhat expensive at €240 per head for the hour trip but you really get a different perspective of the park and the falls. We had incredible views of all the waterfalls in the area. The road to Jim Jim is closed so this is the only way to see them.

Jim Jim falls is a 45 minute drive from Coolinda, along a badly corrugated unsurfaced road. Upon reaching JIm Jim there is a further 1 km hike along a track strewn with boulders of all sizes. Walking and climbing over these rocks is rather tiring especially on a hot summer day. Making matters worse there is sand scattered every where... More

This is one of the highlights for many travellers to the region. We had booked to go out in a 4wd to visit the falls but because of unseasonal rain this month many of the roads are closed. The next best thing is to take to the sky and book a flight which we did. It did not disappoint. The... More

The falls were not running in August when we visited (dry season). However, swimming was possible at waterholes. Access is really challenging, with a lot of walking over large boulders and rocks. This is only for the VERY fit and agile.Only a 900m walk from the car park, but it takes quite a while due to the conditions.

What an amazing place to see! I have to say that it was t easy to get too! The terrain was very rough and not for the elderly of this that have young children or those incapable of climbing up and down huge rocks! It's a long distance to do so much climbing and we were exhausted getting there only... More

From the initial planning for our trip to NT, Jim Jim falls was always high on my list of places to visit. I had seen pictures and read about it along and it didn't disappoint. We stayed close by at Garnamarr campground so fairly close by. Bit of a rough drive in but interesting seeing all the bright green new... More

We did a Spirit of Kakadu 4WD trip to Jim Jim and Twin Falls. We were picked up at our accommodation in Jabiru and taken to Cooinda to board the 4WD bus. Its a trek into Jim Jim and once we got out of the bus it was still a 900m walk/clamber over a rocky path. We loved it but... More

We visited Jim Jim falls as part of a group with Kakadu Tourism, which obviated the need to hire a 4WD. The walk up to the falls requires a fair degree of fitness and suppleness as the last 100m or so is scrambling over boulders, many of which have been 'polished' by the water in the wet season. But its... More

The drive and then walk into Jim Jim is worth the effort. Even in the dry with little to no water running over the falls, it is still a spectacular site to visit. Nature at its best.
