Litchfield National Park
Only a 60-minute drive hour south of Darwin, Litchfield National Park is possibly the Northern Territory’s best-kept secret. The park is filled with stunning waterfalls and waterholes that are surrounded by monsoonal vine forests all of which offer a cool respite on warm summer days. A drive through Litchfield is full of contrasts and some of the most enormous termite mounds in the Top End. Cabin, camping and caravan sites are within a short drive of the park gates.
Wangi Falls Walk
The landscape’s rocky outcrops and ridges offer plenty of opportunities to see local wildlife and provide a haven for northern quolls, wallabies, frogs and lizards. There is abundant birdlife to spot – lookout for colourful red-winged parrots, double-bar finches, or kingfishers. From the escarpment, the path traverses open woodland and crosses creeks lined with pandanus. Overnight at the bush campsite located at Tjenya Falls.
This popular swimming spot, in the magnificent Litchfield National Park, is a great place to wind down after exploring the park. Wade through the pools absorbs the scenic bush surrounds or sit and relax, as the cool water rolls over your shoulders. Open for most of the year.
A short walk takes you to a viewing platform at the top of the most spectacular waterfalls in the park. This marks the starting point of the 1. 6-kilometre return Tolmer Falls Walk – an easy walk (that is rocky in parts) that takes about 45 minutes. Follow the path through typical Top End sandstone country and along Tolmer Creek and a tributary, past pristine small rock pools. Swimming is not permitted above the falls.
Nitmiluk National Park, just 30 kilometres north-east of Katherine, covers a vast area, including 13 impressive gorges carved from the ancient sandstone country which stretch for as far as the eye can see. Explore the world-famous park and gorge country on foot, by canoe, boat or helicopter. Watch the gorge move through a spectrum of colours and glowing hues on a sunrise or sunset river cruise.
