The Jim Jim Falls (Aboriginal: Barrkmalam) is a plunge waterfall on the Jim Jim Creek that descends over the Arnhem Land escarpment within the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia. The Jim Jim Falls area is registered on the Australian National Heritage List. The waterfall

descends from an elevation of 259m above sea level via one drop that ranges in height between 140m and 200m into a plunge pool within the creek. The falls are located near the eastern boundary of the national park and 28km south of Jabiru. In the dry season, access from the Kakadu Highway is possible via a 60km gravel road, with the final 11km suitable for four-wheel drive vehicles only. However, during much of this period the falls dry up and do not flow. In the wet season when the falls are at their most spectacular, it is impossible to drive any vehicle into the area and are best viewed from the air together with the nearby Twin Falls.
