    Bring your noodles and swimmers!
    We were lucky to strike a fabulous day and no crocodiles, as one attacked a swiimer not two days after we swam here. It is all clear now we believe. The falls themselves are not spectacular but still, a nice backdrop to the large swimming area. There were a lot of people here, most with their noodles to help them float, something we didnt have but wished we did. The water is clean and cool but not too cold. There looks like there is plenty of parking but we had to find a spot on the side of the entrance road. Just luck to get a parking spot when it is busy. This is definitely worth a visit and an easy drive from Darwin for a day trip.

    Cool off in Wangi Falls pool
    Great swimming hole. We did the walk to tree top deck which was an awesome walk. You can see the tree canopy from this deck. We didn’t continue the walk around as we didn’t have walking shoes on. The pool was great to swim in, nice and cooling, but being fresh water, you aren’t buoyant so remember to take a noodle or hire one as these are really helpful. The pool is accessible with steps and handrails in two areas so easy to get in and out of. Must do cooling pool. We grabbed a sandwich from the kiosk which was tasty and fresh.

    Beutiful falls, easy access
    Lovely falls with viewing platform very close to the carpark. Unfortunately it was closed for swimming but can see that this would be a very popular swimming hole. There is also a cafe on site and free wi-fi which is handy. Would love to come back and have a swim one day!

    Wonderful Wangi Falls
    Beautiful spot, waterfall is amazing, shame we couldn't swim due to crocs, but it's worth it just for the view. Such an incredible spot, felt very in touch with nature there. The walk to the top of the fall was great too, worth the hike.

We've been around to most of the key places in Litchfield and this one we returned to. Amazing swimming, the scenery, water temperature, it's really a must do when visiting. Easy stroll from the car.

Unable to swim as the water levels were still too high with strong currents - and possibly still a saltie (crocodile) lurking in the water

Depending on when you visit, the Wangi Falls are different during the dry and wet seasons. In the dry season, the falls are not as dynamic as it is in the wet seasons. Swimming in the plunge pool was not allowed when we visited because of the possibility of an increased risk of crocodiles. Regardless, the falls provide a beautiful photo opportunity. The rock face area around the falls and other nearby areas are sacred places for the Aboriginals who believed spirits in the form of humans, animals and plants created the features of the landscape here. History notes these falls were a special place for indigenous women to bathe and swim. It is believed men who looked at the women were lured into the waters and to their death. Be respectful.

Yet another impressive waterfall and lake in NT! Here is a good possibility for a swim on a warm and hot day in NT. There are good changing rooms for changing into swimwear. Be careful when you go into the water as the last step is very steep. But the water is nice and cool. It is a very popular area so it could be difficult to find a space.

Very recommendable.
