Yurmikmik Walks are a series of interconnected
walking tracks that provide a wonderful wet season experience.
The individual walks are:
Boulder Creek Walk
2 km return If you don’t fancy the longer hikes, Boulder Creek
is a nice little wet season walk where you may find banded fruit
doves and spangled drongos. Take a refreshing dip in the small
rock pools in the gorge.
Yurmikmik Lookout Walk
5 km return A Kakadu favourite that trails through lush, shady
monsoon forest and ends with a swim under a waterfall. This walk
follows the Motor Car Falls track, and a slight incline takes
you to a lovely view over the South Alligator catchment and the
southern hills and ridges.
Motor Car Falls
7.5 km return Another great wet season walk, this hike along an
old exploration track takes you through the southern hills and
ridges. Be on the lookout for antilopine wallaroos, red-tailed
black cockatoos, finches (including Gouldian finches), hooded
parrots and lorikeets. In the last 300 metres through the monsoon
forest to the plunge pool you may see golden orb spiders and azure
kingfishers. At the end, reward yourself with a refreshing swim
under the waterfall.
11 km return A further 1.2 km past the turn off to Motor Car Falls,
this walk is perfect for the adventurous traveller. You can have
a swim at Motor Car Falls and Boulder Creek on the return walk.
An early start is definitely recommended for this one. You’ll
need a permit to walk in Kurrundie Falls.
