This part of the park is home to the iconic Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls. These spectacular waterfalls are best seen by air during the tropical summer, when heavy rains send huge volumes of water crashing into the gorge below. During the dry season, you can hike over boulders to the base of the falls. 4WD is required and trailers are not permitted. Immerse yourself in rugged natural surroundings as you navigate challenging walking tracks to the Arnhem Land plateau. Jim Jim Falls features a 2 km return walk through monsoon forest and over boulders to a deep plunge pool or family-friendly beach pool. The waterfall flows from the start of the tropical summer until mid-July. Swim at your own risk in the Jim Jim plunge pool only. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

Definitely worth the hike in. We carried our kids off & on with our carriers aged 3 & 4. They would have been too little to make it all the way. Lots of big boulders you have to climb over towards the end ( around 200 + meters ) and the rocks are slippery. Definitely need shoes and go in the morning so you can spend an hour or so there. The water is freezing but you don't care after the hike in.



Great shady walk for most of the way which was a relief from the hot sun! Even though falls not running still a beautiful sight. Plunge pool water didn't look the greatest but i still swam in it! Beaches were nicer but something growled and hissed at me from the edge twice so I got the hell outta there because i was by myself! didn't see what it was and don't want to know !! haha Not another sole around :-)

Anyone willing to take 2-4 of us out to Jim Jim Falls on Thursday for some $$? 2 girls and 2 guys, happy to jump in the back of a Ute/van. :)
