Gunlom Plunge Pool

Gunlom Plunge Pool, situé sur Waterfall Creek dans le Parc national Kakadu inscrit au patrimoine mondial, est une association magique de cascades saisonnières et de bassins paisibles, avec des aires de pique-nique ombragées par de grands gommiers.

Depuis le sommet de Gunlom, vous serez récompensé par une vue à couper le souffle sur trois habitats des collines et arêtes sud du parc : des zones rocheuses, forestières et fluviales.

Au sommet, offrez-vous une plongée relaxante et bien méritée dans les bassins cristallins.Si vous préférez une activité plus tranquille, optez pour la marche sur du plat jusqu’à Murrill Billabong afin d’observer les oiseaux.Vous pouvez également suivre la courte piste jusqu’au bassin principal sous la cascade saisonnière.Apportez votre déjeuner pour apprécier la zone de pique-nique couverte de gazon et ombragée.Si vous séjournez dans le camping très apprécié (à proximité du bassin et de la cascade), vous pourrez profiter d’installations telles que les douches chauffées à l’énergie solaire.

Australian Traveller a nommé les Gunlom Top Pools parmi les 100 plus belles vues d’Australie, et Hooroo a récemment élu Gunlom finaliste parmi les « lieux secrets » d’Australie.
