Thanks all for your kind words.

I wouldn't be suprised if National Geographic has been here. Kings Cascade waterfalls is the name of the place. It's very remote, only accessible via helicopter or boat, it got it's 15 minutes of fame some 20 years ago when an American actress decided to go for a swim. When they found the body, two crocs wanted it back and jump 1.5 metres up a boats side to pull it back.

I can see why it isn't called 'swimming hole'. Gorgeous all the same.

Hey JL- am planning that trip to Kunnunurra you suggested- maybe for june/July/August. I take it this is not a place on the usual sigtseeing trips?? Might have to look into some side trips- this place looks spectacular.

How did you cope with being there in the wet season (I presume since the water is running)- it must have been a bit humid!

Its a popular spot for the light planes to fly over and those Broome to Darwin cruises that are pretty expensive. There are no roads anywhere near the place. I have updated so you can look at where it is on the maps feature. If you look at it, you can see a boat parked there:)

Wet season is the best time of the year.
