Litchfield National Park
Litchfield National Park is an easy 90 minute drive from Darwin, making it the ideal choice for an adventurous day trip or extended visit. Much like the many native birds and wildlife; visitors to the Northern Territory flock here all year round to enjoy the spring-fed waterfalls of Florence, Tolmer and Wangi, as well as the sparkling cascades at Buley Rockhole.
Not far from the cascades, you’ll spy the unusual magnetic termite mounds. These thin towers, all aligned north to south, are intriguing - take a guided tour to discover their secrets! Visitors can join a traditional Wagait owner on a guided tour to learn about the ancient Aboriginal culture of Litchfield National Park, or visit Blyth Homestead to get a taste of the remarkable pioneering and pastoral heritage of this region.
Sealed roads allow easy self-drive access, but if you want to explore some of the more remote sites like Tjaynera Falls and the Lost City, you will need a 4WD. Travellers can stay overnight in Litchfield National Park, or at the nearby township of Batchelor. Day-trippers can also stop at Batchelor to refuel, grab a meal and check out the town’s attractions.
“Litchfield National Park is only 100km south of Darwin, making it a popular getaway for Darwin tourists and locals alike. To see everything, I would definately have to recommend at least a weekend!” Aisling, Territory Discoveries
