Motor Car Falls Pool

Motor Car Falls walk

This walk follows an historic vehicle track.

In 1946, Paul Allmich, an old tin miner, was the first to drive to this Country but he only got his truck as far as Motor Car Creek! The bridge there was built later.

Near the start of the Motor Car Falls walk is witj (turkey bush). During the dry season you may notice these pink-flowered shrubs with scale-like leaves in other parts of the park. The hard timber of straight witj stems makes good spears.

Motor Car Creek is surrounded by lush monsoon forest and is a shady retreat. You may see lawurrk (banded fruitdove) feeding in this forest.

7.5 km return | 4 hours

Moderate walk on a marked track.

A park pass is required to enter Kakadu National Park. Save time on your holiday and purchase your Kakadu park pass online before you leave home.
