Better than Kakadu.

Loved seeing the sights here, and so much more accessible. Don't miss the waterfalls and the walks around.

Beautiful waterfalls, scenery that looks so much better in the wet. But be aware that the roads flood, and can be impassable. If you have a small / medium car, then if its raining, go on a tour. Their vehicles can pass through flooded roads

We were in Darwin for a 13 hrs stop over between flights. Hired a car and went exploring. A great place to explore - the termite mounds and springs beautiful and worth the drive.

We visited in the wet season just a few days ago. This meant the waterfalls were in full flow but so was the surrounding countryside. We set off with the intention of getting to Wangi Falls but a floodway just before the turn off to the Falls was really too deep for our car ( a Nissan Qashqai) so we... More

Everyone told us 'you only need one day in Litchfield' but I'm so glad we didn't listen and had two whole days in the park. We drove down from Darwin on the first day and did the usual touristy things: termite mounds, Florence Falls (closed when we visited due to footpath repairs), Buley Rockhole (super fun), Wangi Falls. These were... More

About 1.5 - 2 drive from Darwin. The scenery on the drive down is interesting. The termite mounds are on the main drive in, do not out of the way and worth a look. We visited the bluey homes and Florence falls and had a lovely swim on them both. They are a close drive from each other, but you... More

LITCHFIIELD vs KAKADU Is the local saying: “LITCHFIELD DO – KAKA DON’T” true? Um, tricky. Each has its pluses making both well worth visiting. But time-short people may have to select one only. Hopefully the stuff below may help: CLOSEST TO DARWIN – LITCHFIELD’S main attractions are centered about 130km from Darwin, KAKADU’S around 300km. LOWEST ENTRY FEE – KAKADU... More

Prepare for an awesome opportunity to swim in some of the most beautiful places on the planet! Beautiful water holes with amazing waterfalls! From the shallower rock pools to the big open waterfalls there are multiple places to stop for a dip. Bring an esky and spend all day stopping at different places to experience all the areas, swim, walk... More

Nature putting on it's best show. Such a beautiful and interesting place. Highly recommend a visit. Just check to make sure the roads are open after the rains.
