Spectacular Stone Country
Join a small group of like-minded travellers on this adventurous 1 day 4WD safari to the edge of the impressive Arnhemland escarpment. Experience Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls, two world renowned icons of the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park.
- Travel through the savanna woodlands of Kakadu, which have more diversity than you’d ever expect!
- Share your guide’s knowledge of Kakadu National Park with its changing landscapes, flora and fauna.
- Discover the astonishing variety of bush tucker and potent medicine plants.
- Let your guide introduce you to the local Aboriginal culture and the history of the Bininj people in Kakadu.
Start with a bushwalk (2km return) along Jim Jim Creek. The shady monsoonal rainforest reveals some of its secrets. Be rewarded for hiking over large rocks and boulders into the gorge with a refreshing swim in the cool, clear waters under the towering cliffs of Jim Jim Falls.
Sit back with a hot cuppa or explore the area around the beach pool and the plunge pool – it’s a photographer’s heaven!
The amount of water flowing over Jim Jim Falls depends on seasonal conditions. Rest assured, a sheer drop of 220m is always an awesome sight, with our without water tumbling over the edge of the cliff!
Our journey continues with an adventurous drive towards Twin Falls. A short boat trip into Twin Falls Gorge and a stroll over rocks and sand (1km return) along the edge of Twin Falls Creek lead us to the base of the falls.
Try catching a glimpse of the timid Freshwater Crocodile basking in the sun or spot a Pig-nosed Turtle in the clear water of the creek.
Take a break and enjoy a freshly prepared picnic lunch on the white sandy beach beside the magnificent Twin Falls.
Swimming is currently not permitted in the gorge of Twin Falls. We recommend that you read Kakadu National Park’s official information on visitor safety and responsibilities.
Tours depart daily from June to October/ November with a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of seven (7) passengers, itinerary subject to accessibility. If Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls are closed due to seasonal conditions, we visit other worthwhile destinations instead.
Your guide will collect you from your accommodation:
- Township of Jabiru at 06:45 or
- Gagudju Lodge Cooinda (Home of Yellow Waters) at 07:30.
It’s worth getting up early to see these two Kakadu “must-dos”!
We return to your accommodation from approximately 17:00.
We reserve the right to alter the itinerary, subject to cultural and seasonal conditions, water levels and Kakadu National Park’s rangers’ progress with their annual mandatory crocodile surveys.
The health and safety of our passengers is our highest priority! We reserve the right to cancel all tours due to the weather conditions. The mean maximum temperature for Jabiru in October is 37.6 deg. In the sandstone gorges of Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls shade is sparse and temperatures often reach 45 degrees and above.
