Motor Car Falls

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Part of the Yurmikmik walks, the long trek to Motor Car Falls is worth the effort. This small waterfall is a particular favourite in the tropical summer, when Kakadu’s larger falls tend to be inaccessible.
Motor Car Creek is surrounded by lush monsoon forest and is a shady retreat for the NT heat. Take it easy on the gravel road there and back.

7.5 km return | 4 hours See it: Almost year round. May close in the peak of tropical summer.

A park pass is required to enter Kakadu National Park. Save time on your holiday and purchase your Kakadu park pass online before you leave home.
