Visit Litchfield National Park
A bit over an hour from Darwin and one of the country’s most stunning National Parks you’ll come across. Something unique about Litchfield is the accessibility of a broad range of incredible things to see available at relatively short distances from one another. Making sure every visit is packed full of breathtaking sites.
Litchfield National Park is a compact but diverse park that covers over 1500 square kilometres of land, a little over an hour’s drive from Darwin. The park is known for its magnificent and diverse waterfalls. Florence Falls and Wangi Falls each cascade down from the sandstone plateau into crystal-clear swimming holes below.
Visitors can explore the park’s extensive networks of hiking tracks which wind through lush rainforests, past ancient termite mounds, and over rugged escarpments, offering stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
Litchfield is home to a wide variety of native wildlife, including wallabies and possums, as well as numerous bird species, such as the colourful rainbow bee-eater and the rare hooded parrot. You’ll often spot a water monitor near the swimming pools which are also home to many fish species.
Litchfield changes significantly from the wet to dry seasons and offers something special for visitors at whatever time of year they plan to visit. Litchfield National Park is an unforgettable experience and very accessible from Darwin.
