Litchfield National Park is a spectacular landscape shaped by water and time, steeped in history and culturally rich. Just 100 km south-west of Darwin, the park is accessible all year via sealed roads.
There are plenty of things to do in Litchfield. There are some truly wonderful camping areas located throughout the Park, as well as plenty of picnic areas, lookouts and bushwalking tracks. Some waterholes in the park make for the perfect secluded swimming spots. Visit magnificent waterfalls, marvel at magnetic termite mounds and camp beneath stars that are so clear you feel like you can reach out and touch them.
Head off on a 4WD adventure on some challenging and remote trails within the park. There are also some fantastic walking tracks that vary between short strolls to 3km bush walks. You can camp at Wangi Falls, Buley Rockhole and Florence Falls. There are 4WD camping areas in the dry season only at Tjaynera Falls, Surprise Creek Falls and downstream from Florence Falls.
Camping fees apply, see Campground Services for management services. Explore and experience the rich woodland of the central sandstone plateau.
