Wangi Falls, Litchfield National Park

4.7
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Litchfield National Park
Surrounded by a lush monsoonal rainforest, Wangi Falls is the most popular attraction in Litchfield National Park. Cascading over a series of segmented tiers and plunging into a natural swimming pool from the height of 84 m (276 ft), the postcard-perfect waterfall is accessible via several walking tracks of various difficulty levels. Take a refreshing dip in the swimming hole or have a picnic on a manicured lawn overlooking the falls. The pool is occasionally closed due to summer rains or sightings of crocodiles.

  • Access to a lookout is accessed by a small walk from the campsite. We can go further to see the canopy.

  • This is a fantastic spot though it has become very popular with tourists as beautiful water fall(s) do! Almost a decade ago it was fairly quiet however there are other waterfalls close by tho most require a much longer walk!😉
  • Darwin was hot and humid and to find someplace like this to cool off was a big win. Such a beautiful and amazing place.
  • Great place to go for a plunge, beware of the crocodiles as I’ve that people got bit here before, could have been a little but better with shower facilities
  • Brilliant place thoroughly enjoyed it 👍
  • Love this place. Huge swimming hole fed by 2 waterfalls. There are rock pools to soak in and rock faces on which to bask in the sun or use as a platform from which to jump and make a splash. Good swimmers can get right up to and under the waterfall and stay in until your fingers and toes are wrinkly. There's a café but we found it was better to pack a lunch and drinks. Be prepared to take out what you bring in. From 2019 there will be no rubbish disposal.
