Section 1: Koolpin to Twin: July 10-16

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. From Koolpin we cross to Twin Falls Creek and work our way downstream to Twin Falls where we meet our food drop.

Amphitheatre Falls from above Upper Twin Falls Gorge

Section 2: Twin to Gunlom: July 16-25

Walking through open woodland on the way to the next waterfall

After meeting our food drop vehicle at Twin Falls, we walk across a plain then climb the escarpment to Surprise Falls, a beautiful spot inaccessible except on a long walk.

Near the headwaters of Waterfall Creek

From here, we continue to Graveside, Barramundi and Waterfall Creek, ending at Gunlom Falls, site of the waterfall scene in the original Crocodile Dundee movie. As always, there is plenty of time for swimming along the way.

We return to Darwin from Gunlom via the small town of Pine Creek. The trip is over but the memories will last a lifetime.

Terrain and difficulty. This is one of the longest trips we offer in Kakadu. You will see more of Kakadu than on most of our other walks.

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. The food drop at the end of section one means that you do not need to carry food for the full 16 days.

Relaxing by the pool Walking through a Kakadu Gorge

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