Litchfield National Park, Batchelor
(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Originally home to the aboriginal Wagait people, Litchfield National Park is noted for its monsoon rainforest and well-marked trails leading to a number of waterfalls. Many of the waterfalls create small streams and natural pools suitable for swimming and diving. The area abounds in wildlife and includes several sites where you can observe rare colonies of native bat species. Be sure to drop by the historic Blyth Homestead, built in 1929 and now serving as an educational reminder of the tough conditions the early settlers of these remote areas faced. Nearby, you can also visit huge termite mounds, erected by thousands of insects with a north-south orientation to control temperature inside their habitat. Designated campgrounds are available for visitors planning to participate in longer bushwalks.

  • The Lichtfield NP is also know as the "sister NP" from Kakadu NP. I was in both NP and i think its hard to compare. The Lichtffield NP is open all year. You can swin in many lakes also in smal waterfalls and the most important thing the park is free. The park is especially fitted for families. Best highlights for me was the Wangi Falls; Florence Falls; Walker Creek Tolmer Falls and Magnetic Termite Mounds was nice but not a reason to remember... At Kakadu you have the problem with the rain and dry seasson. In the rain saesson half of the park is closed cause water is over the streets and you pay 25$ for entry. If you have the chance then go to Lichtfield NP you will enjoy it;)
  • Lovely place to visit and much easier to access than Kakadu. Stayed at Bachelor Butterfly Farm which was a wonderful experience and highly recommended if you want something a little bit different and eco-friendly.
  • Excellent swimming holes (utilize a guide that can tell you which are safe!). Interesting termite mounds. Big open spaces.
  • One of the best National Parks in the country! Swimming is excellent but pretty crowded most of the time...
  • an amazing place way better then kakadu
