Jim Jim Falls 4WD Tour

Getting to Jim Jim Falls is definitely a 4WD experience, but well worth the effort.

On arriving at the falls, there is a short easy walk to the edge of the escarpment with a magnificent view. The 200m high cascading waterfall is a sight to be seen, but choose your timing as her flow varies throughout the year.

Here, there is a white sandy beach to relax, and a beautiful freshwater pool where you can take a refreshing dip.

For the adventurous, there is the option to continue further with some rock climbing involved to get you to the main pool above. We rate the level of difficult an 8/10.

After swimming, we will take you for a short drive to a picturesque location for lunch.

Your tour includes fully guided commentary along the way, on the flora, fauna and indigenous history.

Jim Jim Falls is an 8/10 difficulty if you do all pools and an easy 5/10 if you stay at the bottom pool so suites all levels of fitness.

The fruit on this native species are commonly referred to as Cluster Figs. Trees are found along the river edges and in monsoon forests here in Kakadu National Park. When ripe the fruit are a bright orange colour and are edible. They have a fairly bland taste with a hint of sweetness. Fun fact – fish enjoy eating Cluster Figs too and wait for the fruit to drop in the water. If you see a Cluster Fig tree next to the river with branches overhanging, it might be a good spot to drop a line! 🎣#kakadunationalpark #clusterfig #Ficus #racemosa #Moraceae #neverneversafaritours #kakadu #native #species #plants #idigenous #foodsource
