    Twin Falls Kakadu crossing blog:

    Folks do not try to cross this unless you have advised your 4wd darwin supplier and received advise on how to cross. Then if you still wish to cross get a update from Bowali Visitors centre and not least of all try to cross with another vehicle. Below is the massive Isuzu and canter range 4wd tour bus from Adventure Tours and this is much taller than your average lanadcruiser 4wd. Note that only full sized 4 wheel drives are able to negotiate the deep creek crossing between Jim Jim and Twin Falls.

    Access into Jim Jim falls is depandent on any adverse weather and road conditions. As travel Agents in the past 10 years we have seen the Jim Jim Falls Gorge Track open anywhere from mid June to mid July as there is no set opening date. Taken by us Sept 9th, 2007 on the Jim Jim Track. This was before the seasonal rains had set in which was 6 weeks later. Still with the water across the track into Jim Jim Gorge one needed to be vigilant in navigating and driving track to the last carpark to trek to the Gorge waterhole or billabong beach as some refer to it. The last 20klm we found the toughest with large holes filed with water even in September.

    The colossal Jim Jim Falls is Kakadu’s biggest waterfall. At 200 m high it’s also taller than all the waterfalls at Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks in the Northern Territory. During the tropical summer heavy rains fall across Kakadu submerging vast tracts of land and fuelling these massive falls. The only way to see Jim Jim during this time is by air. As Kakadu moves into the dry season and Jim Jim dries up, it’s possible to walk through monsoon forest and over boulders to the base of the falls. Here you’ll be struck by the enormity of the surrounding cliffs. Reach it via the Jim Jim Plunge Pool Walk.
