Oz Trip - Day 57

Day 57 – 27/6/2012 – Gunlom Falls (Again)

It was so nice swimming in the plunge pools at the top of Gunlom Falls that we decided to stay an extra day and not worry about trying to get into Twin Falls or Jim Jim Falls. Apparently the road into them was a lot rougher and you weren't camped right near the falls. From the camp grounds it was another 10 to 12km drive to the falls. They were also a lot more popular with the tourist buses etc. So we though that we would leave them for another time if we were ever back in Kakadu.

We did the walk to the top of Gunlom Falls again for another swim. This time were were a bit more prepared and had lunch at the top as well. That way we spent a lot more time in the gorge which was a lot cooler than in the camp site. We also explored a bit more upstream and found a few more swimming holes.

Gunlom Falls also appeared in the first Crocodile Dundee movie. When we get home we will have to watch the movie again to see if we can spot it.
