This part of the park is home to the iconic Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls. These spectacular waterfalls are best seen by air during the tropical summer, when heavy rains send huge volumes of water crashing into the gorge below. During the dry season, you can hike over boulders to the base of the falls. 4WD is required and trailers are not permitted. Immerse yourself in rugged natural surroundings as you navigate challenging walking tracks to the Arnhem Land plateau. Jim Jim Falls features a 2 km return walk through monsoon forest and over boulders to a deep plunge pool or family-friendly beach pool. The waterfall flows from the start of the tropical summer until mid-July. Swim at your own risk in the Jim Jim plunge pool only. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

It's about 2 km each way. The path is well signed, however, there is some rock climbing required. It was a fun hike and our 3 yo did the whole thing and led the way to the beach. I think a reso al le level of fitness is required. From the beach, we swam to the other rocks and climbed over to the plunge pool. Cold but worth it. No waterfall but still stunning. We left Cooinda at 9 am and returned at 4 pm. Allow the day! Follow us on Insta if you'd like to see some photos and videos from the falls @spidervan_adventures



The road in has bad corogations in it, but just air your tyers down and you will have no issues.

We drove the car in (left the van at Cooinda camp) and did the walk to the falls. The falls isn't flowing however it was still amazing! The road in (50km) is very rough. The last 7km from the camp ground to the car park is the worst and you need a 4WD. We did the beach walk which ended up at a sandy beach. We then climbed & swam over to the plunge pool at the base of the falls. The walk is about 1km each way however it is very rocky and requires climbing. Very uneven under foot. It took us about 40 mins each way. Allow yourself a full day, with the drive in, then the walk and then time to swim & relax, you'll need it.
