Koolpin to Twin Falls Walk
Rising from the savannah and wetlands, the rugged quartzite escarpment of the Arnhem Land Plateau dominates southern Kakadu. Great creeks and rivers have exploited fault lines, carving deep gorges and waterfalls as they flow off the highlands of the 'Stone Country'. These watercourses offer a natural walking route for bushwalkers to traverse across the spectacular terrain found on the plateau. From the remote and restricted access of Koolpin Gorge in the far south, this walk climbs up on to the stone country in the heart of this World Heritage wilderness and heads towards Twin Falls. Bushwalking in trackless terrain you are guaranteed solitude and tranquillity thanks to a strict permit system. Beginning in Katherine and concluding in Darwin this full pack carrying bushwalking expedition is a great alternative or extension to our popular Jatbula Trail.
