Please observe and adhere to all safety signs and stay within the barriers. Rain is forecast over the coming days so please be warned that the site may be closed again at short notice. Twin Falls will remain closed, possible access will be reviewed after the weekend and forecast rain.
The Jim Jim Creek is still over 1 metre high making Twin Falls still impassable. Rangers will continually monitor the water levels over the coming days. Our daily road report will continue to provide up-to-date information about access to Jim Jim and Twin Falls.
Kakadu is a biodiversity hotspot and home to more than a third of Australia’s bird species. Reward yourself when joining Parks Australia and NT Birding Experts to celebrate the Top End’s diverse birdlife during Kakadu Bird Week 1-9 October, 2016.
