Visiting Maguk Falls Kakadu National Park
Maguk Falls in Kakadu National Park is a pristine natural waterfall and plunge pool, accessible via a 4WD track and 1km bush walk.
The 14km unsealed road used to reach Maguk Falls is suitable for 4WD only. There is a moderate 1km walk/hike from the carpark to the plunge pool.
Maguk is much easier to access than Jim Jim Falls, making it a more popular option for park visitors.
The plunge pool is croc-free, and warmer than Jim Jim, making it a great option for swimming.
Swimming out to the waterfall and jumping off the rocks is popular, however it is quite a long swim and many visitors choose to bring a pool noodle if their swimming stamina is not fantastic.
Be sure to check that Maguk Falls is open before visiting.
