Gunlom Falls has to be the most beautiful swimming pool I’ve ever been in.
It’s a bit of a drive into Gunlom off the main road within Kakadu, but so worth it. Go slow on the dirt road coming in, there’s a few corrugations. Once you arrive, it’s a short hike up to the top swimming hole. The bottom plunge pool was closed due to the threat of saltwater crocs.
There are a series of pools at the top, which trickle down over the cliff as a waterfall. That trickle will grow once the wet season arrives.
