We docked in Darwin on a cruise ship. Rented a car from Hertz on Mitchell Street, which you can walk to from the ship. It is a fairly long drive to Litchfield National Park (about three hours) but good roads, and well worth it for anyone wanting to get out of the city. In the park, you will see many... More

Perhaps as we are used to America's National Parks, this one did not live up to our expectations. The waterfalls were not at their best but it wasn't just that as there was plenty of water in the plunge pools for bathing. And that is probably why a lot of people rate the park. If you want to cool off... More

.. and probably even better with a 4WD. Really not to be missed, so many of swimming spots that are beautiful. The termite mounds seem to be a highlight when mentioned in guidebooks but please don't just do that! Go further in and explore. All can be done in a day and not too far from Darwin. Bluey Rockholes has... More

We did not have the time to visit Kakadu from Darwin so we came here. We visited the Florence Falls and a nearby swimming hole as well as the termite mounds. It's a beautiful place that is not too crowded.

My wife and I hired a car and drove to the Litchfield National Park, everybody recommends hiring a car so you can have a leisurely trip at your own pace, we saw lots of tours that barely stayed half an hour before moving on. We first went to the termite mounds, clearly signposted, then onto Buley holes which is the... More

Took my fiancée for a day trip. Florence falls terrific view. Buley Rock looks great place to relax and have lunch. Don't forget insect repellent

Really a understated attraction. Loved the termite mounds and the unspoilt beauty of the park. So glad I was finally able to get here. Loved Florence and Wangi Falls too. Water a bit cool, but lovely. Able to swim under the falls at Wangi. Something of a bucket list activity of mine I was able to tick off.

We took a day trip from Darwin to Litchfield Park. My Aussie friends told us this would provide an outback experience. The termite mounds were other worldly and the waterfalls were a treat on a hot day. Do spend time exploring the termite mounds. Stop beside the road and walk among the mounds and touch the material. The roadside stop... More

For our family celebration we chose a bus trip to Litchfield National Park and it was amazing. We hired a 20 plus seat bus and drove out to together. The bus worked a treat! We stopped off at Batchelor Butterfly on the way through for morning tea. The food and service were excellent. The butterfly's were amazing too. We then... More

Litchfield NP is a wonderful spot. Attractions there are very accessible. Most are accessed on bitumen road and distances between them are short (about 50km max). This is quite a contrast to Kakadu though Kakadu has some other types of attractions as well such as crocodiles and aboriginal rock art. Some top spots: The Cascades - a short walk through... More
