Gunlom Plunge Pool

Print this page
  • Daily, 24 hours.

Reap the rewards of a steep climb to the top of the falls with soaring views of Kakadu National Park before a relaxing dip in the crystal clear pools.

Gunlom Plunge Pool, located on Waterfall Creek in World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, is a magical combination of seasonal waterfall and serene plunge pool, with picnic areas shaded by tall gums.

From the top of Gunlom you will be rewarded with sweeping vistas of three habitats of the southern hills and ridges of the park - stone country, woodland and riparian (riverine) areas. At the top take a relaxing and well-deserved dip in the crystal clear pools. If something more sedate is more your style, take the flat easy walk to Murrill Billabong for some great birdwatching, or follow the short walking track to the main pool below the seasonal waterfall. Bring your lunch and enjoy the grassed, shady picnic area. If you're staying over at the popular camping area (not far from the pool and waterfall), you'll appreciate the facilities such as the solar-powered hot showers.

Australian Traveller voted the Gunlom Top Pools within Australia's Top 100 best views and Hooroo has also recently voted Gunlom as a finalist in Australia's 'Secret Spots'.

An entry fee of AUD25.00 per person over the age of 16 years is required to enter Kakadu National Park.
