Litchfield National Park, Batchelor

#2 of 20 in Nature in Top End
National Park Wildlife Area
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.

  • We did the full loop going in via the dirt roads to the north which meant we were going in a different direction to most of the traffic which was good. Wangy falls were lovely, but the cafe is only so...  more »
  • Florence falls is a must see... and swim ! Nice nature walks Termites are amazing ! Worth to spend 1 or 2 days there ;-)  more »
  • One of the best national parks I have visited. So many waterholes to visit and swim in, I cannot recommend this national park enough. If you are in Darwin and have a day to spare then head down to Litchfield and you will not regret it.
  • Free national park with many falls to swim and water holes as well. Near to the kakadu national park and really better!
  • Great fun. Visited Buley Waterholes and Florence Falls. Refreshing swims.
  • Amazing experience! Wonderful place for bush camping and for swimming close the waterfall.
  • Much better than kakadu, worth a visit even for one day.
