Twin Falls, in Australia's Top End, is one of the most spectacular features of the must-see Kakadu National Park. Whilst we know you'll love the 50 metre high falls, you'll love the journey there just as much!
A rocky road guides you through Kakadu National Park, taking you through tropical forest and past crystal clear creeks. This road isn't for the faint hearted, and a 4WD is absolutely necessary. We have comfortable, air-conditioned 4WD vehicles on our tours in Kakadu that will comfortably get you to Twin Falls. The road is such that even 4WD has to drive carefully, which gives you the opportunity to truly appreciate the beauty of nature surrounding you. And who knows, you may even spot some of the native dingoes, kangaroos and pelicans along the way.
Even 4WD vehicles won't get you past the mighty gorge that awaits as the last major hurdle to Twin Falls. This gorge, created by the Arnhem Land escarpment, used to be a test of faith for anyone looking to visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Australia as the only way to get through was through swimming against the stream. Now, a boat shuttle takes visitors to the falls and while it does significantly ease the hurdle, you still feel dwarfed by the imposing land masses rising up around you.
Before you know it, you're through the gorge as the boat drops you off close to the breathtaking falls. Listed on the Australian Heritage List, Twin Falls will be among the most beautiful waterfalls you'll ever see. The dual waterfalls cascade down to their crystal clear basin from a height of about 50 metres!
Naturally, you want to get closer. Fortunately, it only takes a two minute walk from the boat's drop off location over some rocks and a boardwalk to get to a white, sandy beach at the foot of the falls.
Swimming by the falls and drying on a white beach right next to them in the hot Australia sun will be a memory you won't soon forget. And you'll be glad to have included it on your itinerary for your Australian adventure!
