Litchfield National Park Tours

star-5
126 reviews
Litchfield National Park
With its waterfalls, waterholes, and lush rain forests, Litchfield National Park has no shortage of spectacular scenery. Just a short drive from Darwin, it’s also known for its magnetic termite mounds that tower up to 7 feet (2 meters) tall. These sculptural cairns were built by termites.
 
The Basics
It's possible to take in the highlights of Litchfield National Park on a day trip from Darwin. Most tours include photo opportunities at Wangi Falls and Florence Falls, a visit to the Cathedral and Magnetic Termite Mounds, and chance to swim at the Buley Rockhole. Many day trips also include a crocodile-spotting cruise along the Adelaide River or lunch at Litchfield Café.
 
Devote a couple of days to Litchfield to have more time to hike, spot wildlife, visit the Blyth Homestead museum, and camp out in the rain forest. Multi-day tours from Darwin often include a tour of Top End, including Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, and Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge).
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • There are no entrance fees or permits required to enter the park, although many campsites do charge a fee.
  • Many trails and attractions are only accessible by 4WD.
  • Bring comfortable shoes, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, and water.
  • Crocodiles are common throughout the park, so it’s important to only swim in designated areas.
  • Many attractions are wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get There
Litchfield National Park is in the Northern Territory, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Darwin. There’s no public transport to Litchfield, so it’s best to join a guided tour unless you have your own transport. By road, the easiest entry point is via Batchelor. In the dry season, access is also possible through Cox Peninsula Road.

When to Get There
It’s possible to visit Litchfield National Park year-round, but the most popular time to visit is during dry season (May to October). Wet season (November to April) offers impressive views, with the waterfalls at their most powerful, but high water levels also mean many 4WD tracks are closed and some attractions are inaccessible.
 
Litchfield National Park Waterfalls and Waterholes
Litchfield has plenty of photo-worthy scenery, but it's the waterfalls—cascading from the Tabletop Range sandstone plateau—which really draw the crowds. Don’t miss Wangi Falls, a large fall and swimming spot; Florence Falls, surrounded by monsoonal forest; and Buley Rockhole, where you can lounge in rock pools as if in a cool Jacuzzi. The hike to Tolmer Falls is full of photo opportunities and wildlife sightings.

Admission: Free. There is a fee for camping
