The Basics

It's possible to take in the highlights of Litchfield National Park on a day trip from Darwin. Most tours include photo opportunities at Wangi Falls and Florence Falls, a visit to the Cathedral and Magnetic Termite Mounds, and chance to swim at the Buley Rockhole. Many day trips also include a crocodile-spotting cruise along the Adelaide River or lunch at Litchfield Café.

Devote a couple of days to Litchfield to have more time to hike, spot wildlife, visit the Blyth Homestead museum, and camp out in the rain forest. Multi-day tours from Darwin often include a tour of Top End, including Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, and Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge).

Litchfield National Park and Jumping Crocodile Cruise
Joey our tour guide was excellent. If he asks u to do the little adventure with him I suggest doing it!!!!only thing I was disappointed in was the buffet style lunch and kids snacks for adults!!!!!lol!!!! Not enough talk on hygiene ( especially with COVID)but we all know we should be sanitising our hands anyway. All in all was a great tour. Waterfalls magnificent. Loved the tour guide. I suggest u buy him a beer at the end of the day. He deserved it!!!!!!

Litchfield National Park Day Tour from Darwin
Tremendous tour with a passionate tour leader that enjoys his job. Especially the advice on a swimming hole no-one knew about. Considering the amount of vehicles and people at the tourist sites this was an excellent way to see Litchfield National Park.

Litchfield National Park Day Tour from Darwin With Waterfalls And Buley Rockhole
Long but a wonderful day. Visit and swimming in 3 lovely but different fresh waterfall/holes was refreshing and something to experience. Get up real close and personal with crocodiles with Pat. Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable on a wide range of all things NT. Her commentary throughout the day made the bus ride enjoyable and the day seemed to go quick.

Litchfield National Park and Jumping Crocodile Cruise
Excellent tour and great tour guides. The crocodile boat trip was amazing and you get really close to the cros. Damo was very entertaining and gave good information as well as funny comments. Litchfield park was great and Daz was extremely knowledgeable as well as witty. Lunch provided was perfect and there lots of snacks provided as well.

How to Get There

Litchfield National Park is in the Northern Territory, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Darwin. There’s no public transport to Litchfield, so it’s best to join a guided tour unless you have your own transport. By road, the easiest entry point is via Batchelor. In the dry season, access is also possible through Cox Peninsula Road.

When to Get There

It’s possible to visit Litchfield National Park year-round, but the most popular time to visit is during dry season (May to October). Wet season (November to April) offers impressive views, with the waterfalls at their most powerful, but high water levels also mean many 4WD tracks are closed and some attractions are inaccessible.

Litchfield National Park Waterfalls and Waterholes

Litchfield has plenty of photo-worthy scenery, but it's the waterfalls—cascading from the Tabletop Range sandstone plateau—which really draw the crowds. Don’t miss Wangi Falls, a large fall and swimming spot; Florence Falls, surrounded by monsoonal forest; and Buley Rockhole, where you can lounge in rock pools as if in a cool Jacuzzi. The hike to Tolmer Falls is full of photo opportunities and wildlife sightings.
