Jim Jim Plunge Pool

Jim Jim plunge pool walk

Walk through monsoon forest and climb over boulders to a deep natural pool surrounded by dramatic 200 m cliffs.

When the falls are in full flood during the tropical summer, they can only be seen from the air on a scenic flight.

In the dry season the falls stop running and you can hike into the heart of the gorge and sit in the shadow of these spectacular cliffs.

2 km return | 1-2 hours

See it: June to November, 4WD only
