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).

Litchfield National Park and Jumping Crocodile Cruise
Joey our tour guide was excellent. If he asks u to do the little adventure with him I suggest doing it!!!!only thing I was disappointed in was the buffet style lunch and kids snacks for adults!!!!!lol!!!! Not enough talk on hygiene ( especially with COVID)but we all know we should be sanitising our hands anyway. All in all was a great tour. Waterfalls magnificent. Loved the tour guide. I suggest u buy him a beer at the end of the day. He deserved it!!!!!!

Litchfield tour was very interesting. Enjoyed the falls, so disappointing that Wangi was not swimmable but unavoidable. Howard Springs Nature Park stop off proved to be delightful. Guide very knowledgeable. Thank you for a good day.

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.
