Once we arrived at Jim Jim falls we had to climb down into the canyon. When we got there we swam in the pool at the bottom of the waterfall and a there was also a mini beach which was random when you think you're actually in the middle of the outback. Crocodiles are native to this part of Australia and there were warning signs everywhere we went about not getting to close to the water as people have been killed here before. I would have been happy to spend the whole day at Jim Jim falls but when we got to Twin falls it was so much better again
We left Kakadu on Friday. On the way out we stopped off and saw some aboriginal art work on the rocks which were thousands of years old. Another reminder of how vast Australia is, this "park" is actually roughly the same size as Wales. Arrived in Katherine yesterday and had a wash in the thermal baths and spent the night in a caravan park.
Tomorrow we are going Kaiyaking down the 13 gorges around Katherine
