Litchfield National Park

National Park in Around Darwin

Welcome to one of Australia's best national parks, a stunning world of striking rock formations and rock pools, high cliffs and waterfalls, croc-free swimming and outstanding hiking. It's just 115km from Darwin, which makes it really accessible but also means it can get really crowded with day trippers. Aside from hiking, other highlights include magnetic termite mounds, Buley Rockhole, Florence Falls and Tolmer Falls. But Litchfield's big-ticket attraction is Wangi Falls, which spill over a cliff into a swimming hole bordered by rainforest.
