Where is it?
Waterfall Creek in Kakadu National Park, 315km south-east of Darwin
How to see it for yourself?
Gunlom Falls are accessible by 4WD vehicles along the Gunlom Track, near the southern entrance to Kakadu National Park. Drive carefully as the track is unsealed, subject to flooding and sandy in areas. It is impassable in the wet season but open between May and October. Once there, visitors can swim at the base of the falls or take the walking track to the top where there are more swimming holes – and where this view was taken. The walking track is steep, uneven and suitable for people with a medium level of fitness. Remember to take plenty of water for the trek.
Why I love it
“It’s the magical combination of a waterfall and serene plunge pool, with shady gums cooling the picnic areas. A steep climb to the top of the waterfall provides sweeping views of the southernmost parts of Kakadu National Park while you enjoy a relaxing dip in the crystal- learpools.” – Nelson Hall, Tourism NT
