Kakadu Wet Season Wonders!

Kakadu Wet Season Wonders!

Kakadu is greening up and the waterfalls are roaring!  

The wet season has well and truly kicked in, with recent heavy rainfalls in the region.

Our recent 2 Day Kakadu tour last week was the first group in to see Motorcar falls flowing for the season and enjoyed a refreshing swim.

Motorcar Falls is located in the southern hills and basins region of Kakadu.  Access is via a 3 km walk from the Yurmikmik walking trails car-park on the Gimbat (Gunlom) road.

Looking out over the southern region basins.

A short detour in the walk takes you to a lookout where you have views of the Sth Alligator river valley and main escarpment plateau in the distance.

When visiting this area, we usually stay overnight close by, so are usually the first group in to the falls in the morning and have it to ourselves for a while!

Koolpin Gorge Charters

Koolpin Gorge Charters

Koolpin Gorge (Jarrangbarnmi) is located in a remote section of Kakadu National Park.

Experience the spectacular beauty and pristine remoteness of Jarrangbarnmi in Kakadu’s southern rock country.  Rare flora and fauna abound amongst the waterholes, cascades and rocky cliffs.  This culturally significant region is one of Kakadu’s hidden gems!

The name Jarrangbarnmi comes from the Jawoyn words jarrang meaning flood, or big water flow, and barn meaning rift or gap.  On exploring the area, it will become evident of the appropriate naming of the landscape.

Jarrangbarnmi is a culturally sensitive area and of significant importance to the Jawoyn people (local Bininj).  Their creation ancestor, Bula, formed the impressive landscape.  Visitors are asked to respect the important sites within Buladjang (“Sickness”) country.

Jarrangbarnmi (Koolpin Gorge) is a restricted access area with a limit of 40 people a day allowed to visit the area at any one time.

Independent travellers and tour operators have the opportunity to access the region on a Permit basis.  As such, access is granted on a ‘first in’ request based upon already previously allocated dates and visitor numbers.

Kakadu 4WD Safaris hold a special licence for Casual access to Koolpin Gorge.
