2 Overview

Established in 1986, Litchfield National Park is a stunning location. You can take in the splendour of thundering waterfalls, rainforest pockets and historic sacred sites. It is a haven for hundreds of native bird species and the plateau supports a rich range of woodland flora. The traditional custodians of the Park are the Wagait people, many of whom still call the area home.

Litchfield National Park

Litchfield National Park is the hidden gem among the Top End's many dramatic landscapes. A two hour drive south of Darwin will find you at this amazing natural wonderland, formed by water and time and bursting with natural attractions and home to a variety of wildlife.

Visit the spectacular Florence Falls, and take a swim beneath its tumbling twin torrents surrounded by the tranquillity of the vine gully.

At Tolmer Falls you can view the sparkling cascade plunging into a swimming hole bordered by rainforest, home to several colonies of rare ghost bats and orange horseshoe bats.

Wangi Falls, the largest of all, offers the opportunity to cool off, have a swim and soak in your surroundings of the glistening pandanus fringed pools. From here, you can also discover the many scenic walking tracks which offer panoramic views of the open valley and the waterholes below. The Florence Creek walk will lead you to the popular Buley Rockhole, a series of natural spas and whirlpools.

You'll see various Termite Mounds throughout the Northern Territory, but the best place to view these surreal tombstone-like mounds is at Litchfield from the viewing boardwalk. These intelligently designed structures, many of which stand over 2 metres tall, are complete with arches, tunnels and even chimneys. Look out for the Cathedral Termite Mounds, with some standing at over an impressive 4 metres tall.
