Escape the heat and the Crocs

Definitely a day trip for those with 4wd's, yet if you don't have one don't despair there are plenty of tour operators in the area. Start the journey with an enjoyable bushwalk through the monsoonal rainforest alongside Jim Jim Creek. Be warned though not all of the hike is simple with large boulders to be contended with along the way. Of course though that means you can go for a swim when you get there as Crocodile management procedures in dry season involves relocating Salt Water Crocodiles.

All that effort will be rewarded when you get there and take a dip in the cool sparkling aqua waters of Jim Jim Falls surrounded by towering cliff faces.

After you have cooled off make sure you take the opportunity to go to Twin falls only a short drive away. Enjoy a boat ride then a short stroll over rocks, sand and along a board-walk to the base of Twin Falls.Through the crystal clear water it is easy to spot fish and even the occasional Pig Nosed Turtle. You may also see some fresh water Crocodiles, but don't worry they don't eat humans. Do check with Kakadu national Park information if it is safe to swim before you go in.
