Jim Jim Falls

Natural Attractions

Whether they are raging with water or reduced to a mere trickle, the majestic Jim Jim Falls are a sight to behold at the end of a challenging four-wheel drive track in the southern escarpment country of Kakadu National Park.

Jim Jim Falls is an imposing 200 metre high waterfall. See it from the air during the tropical season when water roars over the drop and the road is impassable. Take the challenging drive in the dry when the falls are reduced to a trickle to get up close. Marvel at the contrast between the red ochre of the Arnhem Land escarpment and the white sandy beaches. It’s worth the 900 metre walk across the rocks to take a dip in the crystal clear water of the plunge pool.

Turn east off the Kakadu Highway 43 kilometres south of the Bowali Centre. Then travel a further 60 kilometres along the four-wheel drive tracks. Allow two hours one-way. Please note speed limits and drive safely, as the last 10 kilometres of track includes areas of soft sand.

An entry fee of AUD25.00 per person over the age of 16 years is required to enter Kakadu National Park.
