Directions

Near Batchelor, 100 km south-west of Darwin, the Park is generally accessible all year (sealed roads) via Batchelor. In the dry season it is also possible to get to the Park via Cox Peninsula Road (which is unsealed).

Where are we going today?

Litchfield National Park features numerous waterfalls which cascade from a sandstone plateau called the Tabletop Range, monsoon rainforests, intriguing magnetic termite mounds and historical sites.

Plus: picture yourself camping out and taking part in the small-scale mining activities at the turn of last century when you visit the old Bamboo Creek Tin Mine ruins. Until the early 1950s, the park was site of several tin and copper mines and relics of this mining era can be seen at Bamboo Creek Tin Mine. The wide variety of remains which survive are in good condition.

Enjoyable walks leave from most popular sites. Signs in the carparks and along the tracks will show you the way. The walks vary between short strolls and walks of 1 km to 3 km.

This Park is spectacular at any time, though most 4WD tracks are closed during the wet season. Some swimming areas such as Wangi Falls, become unsafe after heavy rain and are closed for swimming but kiosk and picnic facilities remain open.

Local adventure tours and safaris operate in this area.

    One of my best 4x4 drives in this park. The southern end has some great things to see and is only accessible by 4x4. Can't wait to come back.
