Koolpin Gorge (Jarrangbarnmi) is located in a remote section of Kakadu National Park.
Experience the spectacular beauty and pristine remoteness of Jarrangbarnmi in Kakadu’s southern rock country. Rare flora and fauna abound amongst the waterholes, cascades and rocky cliffs. This culturally significant region is one of Kakadu’s hidden gems!
The name Jarrangbarnmi comes from the Jawoyn words jarrang meaning flood, or big water flow, and barn meaning rift or gap. On exploring the area, it will become evident of the appropriate naming of the landscape.
Jarrangbarnmi is a culturally sensitive area and of significant importance to the Jawoyn people (local Bininj). Their creation ancestor, Bula, formed the impressive landscape. Visitors are asked to respect the important sites within Buladjang (“Sickness”) country.
