How hard is it to get to Twin Falls?

Located at the south end of Kakadu National Park, beyond Jim Jim Falls, the road to the waterfall is unsealed and corrugated, known as Jim Jim Road and Twin Falls Road. This is definitely 4WD only, rough and corrugated in patches, and sandy with drifts and sand banks in other places, making it a considerably slow trip. Check your car rental conditions before driving to Twin Falls. Avoid driving in the dark.

Is the road to Twin Falls open?

The road is accessible only during the dry season, generally from May to October, as the last section involves a deep water crossing at Jim Jim Creek. Drivers should be aware of fast-flowing water in Kakadu National Park. A 4WD vehicle with a snorkel is required for this crossing. To get to Twin Falls, you’ll have to cross an often fairly deep creek, so you'll need to check with the Bowali Visitor Centre for its depth before departing. Do not enter the water and stay inside the vehicle at all times while crossing water bodies in vehicles. Always check the park's information for water height.
