Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Top End / Batchelor / Nature / Litchfield National Park
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.

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.
