Jungle Lake at Batchelor, Northern Territory,
Rum Jungle Lake
Rum Jungle Lake - a favourite with some of the locals.
Later, in 1949, uranium was discovered in the nearby
area of Rum Jungle, 11 km north of Batchelor. Again,
the town's population swelled, until the mine was
closed in 1963. Rum Jungle Lake - swimming and picnics,
10 km west of Batchelor.

Road Poett Road turnoff to Rum Jungle Lake
- then we found that the first 6klm very corrigated
and unsealed - then the road improved to the end
and the Lake and carpark aboave.
We found the lake a little hard to access and
went to the left side of the bank and apparently
should have ventured right of the carpark.
The lake is very deep - so any swimming is
with great caution and check conditions first
with the local authorities.
