Spectacular all year - see this area from the ground in the dry season, and from the air in the wet season.The Jim Jim Area is only accessible by 4WD during the dry season. Visitors can explore the spectacular and challenging walks or take a boat shuttle ride to Twin Falls over crystal clear waters (charges apply). Scenic flights are also very popular, and allow visitors to see the spectacular Jim Jim Falls, which are in full flow only during the wet season

This was one of the stops on our 4WD day trip and the walk was interesting although the last clamber over boulders was a bit challenging. The water and beach was lovely and even had a bit of shade - a few of us ventured...More

Do it if you can. It's somewhat expensive at €240 per head for the hour trip but you really get a different perspective of the park and the falls. We had incredible views of all the waterfalls in the area. The road to Jim Jim...More

Jim Jim falls is a 45 minute drive from Coolinda, along a badly corrugated unsurfaced road. Upon reaching JIm Jim there is a further 1 km hike along a track strewn with boulders of all sizes. Walking and climbing over these rocks is rather tiring...More

This is one of the highlights for many travellers to the region. We had booked to go out in a 4wd to visit the falls but because of unseasonal rain this month many of the roads are closed. The next best thing is to take...More

We visited Jim Jim falls as part of a group with Kakadu Tourism, which obviated the need to hire a 4WD. The walk up to the falls requires a fair degree of fitness and suppleness as the last 100m or so is scrambling over boulders,...More
