Kakadu & Top End

Kakadu Short Circle

Fast way into the pool
Walking along Koolpin Creek

Our walk begins in southern Kakadu and takes us through spectacular Koolpin Gorge with its many waterfalls and Aboriginal art sites. We continue to follow Koolpin Creek and its tributaries for several days stopping visit some of the many Aboriginal art sites and swim in some of the many pools along the way.

Walking along Koolpin Creek Yam style Aboriginal painting

From Koolpin, we cross over to the Graveside system with its many beautiful pools, cascades and the best natural waterslide we have found on any of our trips.

Walking through Cascades Creek Gorg It's easier than it looks
Pool at one of our Barramundi campsites

From Graveside, we go overland to the Barramundi Creek system with yet more pools and waterfalls

Near the headwaters of Waterfall Creek

From Barramundi, we do a climb up and over a ridge to the headwaters of Waterfall Creek which we follow down to Gunlom site of the waterfall scene in the original Crocodile Dundee movie. At Gunlom, a bus picks us up and takes us to the Cooinda resort where we do a wetlands cruise on Yellow Waters before going to Jabiru for a final night before returning to Darwin the following morning.

Terrain and difficulty.This is one of the most leisurely trips we offer in Kakadu. The schedule allows most groups to get into camp early or have long breaks during the day.

However, once you start, you are in to the finish. There is no vehicular access anywhere along the route.

Some sections of the walk are fairly flat and relatively easy. Others involve considerable rock hopping and are moderately difficult. There are a few steep climbs but these are short and over relatively quickly for most groups.

To take part you need good fitness and a sense of adventure

Yet another  Kakadu pool, perfect for swimming

Your rewards are waterfalls, wildflowers and an incredible Kakadu wilderness experience no other operator can offer you.
