Gunlom Falls

Today we headed to Gunlom Falls. Gunlom is part of the Waterfall Creek, one of the 18 major tributaries of the South Alligator Creek. The South Alligator River is the only large tropical river system to be entirely protected within a National Park. This is one of the reasons why Kakadu is recognised as a World Heritage Area.

One of my wish list things to do has always been to swim under a waterfall, it is now ticked, it was such a wonderful experience in such a pristine environment. 

The plunge pool below the falls.

We then drove to Yurmikmik to have a little look around there.

Next stop was Bukbukluk Lookout.

Returning to Cooinda for a swim before dinner.
