Information

This place does not appear on tourist maps, although at least one Kakadu tour bus visits there for a swim. It is known to locals as ‘Moline’ or ‘Moline Waterhole’. It is located just outside Kakadu National Park, just off the Kakadu Highway on the left, before coming to the Mary River Roadhouse from Pine Creek.

The story is that the waterhole was developed by the Moline Goldmine company as a picnic spot/swimming hole for staff relaxation. It is a very pleasant and secluded spot, with a very rough road in and no facilities at all for camping. It is less than say 2k from the bitumen Kakadu Highway – so it’s an easy walk.
