This dazzling waterfall spills from steep gorge walls into a pristine plunge pool. A short monsoon rainforest walk delivers you to this stunning location where lush vegetation and beautiful wildlife is found. Rainbow pitas, emerald doves and spangled drongos are common here while endemic Anbinik trees the biggest trees in Stone Country find refuge in the forest. You emerge near the end of the trail into a bouldered river section. From here you can continue on the marked trail across the river to the main plunge pool set in an immense stone amphitheatre. 4WD is required to access this site. Be Crocwise. Swimming Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs! Kakadu has Crocodile Management Zones to minimise risk to humans.
