We had our permit (easy to obtain) and did a hike up to the Koolpin Gorge in Kakadudu. It was a pretty moderate hike, nothing too challenging except keeping the birds from diving at us in some parts.

That said this is one of the better spots in Kakadu, definately worth trying to get a permit... More
