Northern Territory Australia  Accommodation and Information

Mary River National Park   Kakadu Territory


Mary River, Gunlom and Waterfall Creek Nature Park
At the southern end of Kakadu, near the southern entry to the park and off the Kakadu Highway 37 km on a gravel road, is the small (236 hectare) Waterfall Creek Nature Park. Apart from being a very pleasant stopover point the Gunlom plunge pool became internationally famous when it featured prominently in Crocodile Dundee where Paul Hogan, having cooked a goanna, decides to eat baked beans. Apart from the great advantage of being away from the crowds, there is an excellent plunge pool for swimming and the Gunlom Lookout Walk (only 1 km return but steep) offers excellent views over the surrounding countryside
