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

Jim Jim Falls are truly impressive even when not flowing. The walk up the gorge is beautiful and fun, that is if you are reasonably fit and agile and up for some rock hopping and scrambling. A swim after the walk is refreshing, but be careful, the water can be ice cold early in the dry. There is also a... More

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 over into the next pool - safety in numbers but no crocs and the icy... 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 is closed so this is the only way to see them.

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 especially on a hot summer day. Making matters worse there is sand scattered every where... 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 to the sky and book a flight which we did. It did not disappoint. The... More

The falls were not running in August when we visited (dry season). However, swimming was possible at waterholes. Access is really challenging, with a lot of walking over large boulders and rocks. This is only for the VERY fit and agile.Only a 900m walk from the car park, but it takes quite a while due to the conditions.

What an amazing place to see! I have to say that it was t easy to get too! The terrain was very rough and not for the elderly of this that have young children or those incapable of climbing up and down huge rocks! It's a long distance to do so much climbing and we were exhausted getting there only... More

From the initial planning for our trip to NT, Jim Jim falls was always high on my list of places to visit. I had seen pictures and read about it along and it didn't disappoint.
