Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Top End / Kakadu National Park / Jim Jim Falls
See the largest waterfall in Kakadu National Park, the Jim Jim Falls. The near vertical cliffs form a spectacular, steep 200 m (660 ft) drop for water that overflows from the rocky plateau top’s creeks and rivers onto floodplains below. In this dry and harsh environment, water volume varies from dramatic fall to a trickle in the dry season. You can access the falls only during the dry season and by 4WD. Camp in the area near to Jim Jim to see why the isolated and remote falls made it to the World Heritage List. Plan to see Jim Jim Falls and other attractions that appeal to you using our Jabiru (Kakadu National Park) sightseeing planner.

Jim Jim Falls Reviews
Self drove from Cooinda. 50km dirt track which wasn’t too bad, followed by 5km 4wd only track. The walk from the car park to the falls...was hard. We had our 10 year old with us and it was rough... more »
This was worth the trek over large rocks and boulders. The kids in our group are 9 and 12, capable of climbing and jumping and had fun. When we reached the end it was spectacular and half our group.... more »
Loved visiting Jim Jim at the end of the dry, if you have a 4WD a definite must see. The campgrounds just before the falls was nice and cheap at $12pp with showers and bathroom facilities. Just be aware your in for a bumpy ride there with plenty of corrugations in the dirt track and plenty of clambering over rocks to get to the actual plunge pool.
4x4 required, Great 1 kilometre hike, it’s not for all, a lot of climbing over boulders, Hiking boots required and some level of fitness. But well worth it. Heaven on earth, it will have you in awe.
