Tjaynera/Sandy Creek Falls

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Escape to the serenity of Tjaynera Falls/Sandy Creek Falls in the magnificent Litchfield National Park, 90 kilometres south of Darwin as the crow flies.

From the car park (that was the site of a timber cutting camp in the mid-1990s) walk the 1.4 kilometres through the open valley lined with paperbarks to relax in the plunge at the base of the falls. Enjoy the stunning views of the open valley, sit down to a picnic lunch or take a refreshing dip in the clear waters of the plunge pool beneath the falls. Accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicle, these falls attract less traffic than the readily accessible cascades and pools elsewhere in the park, and with campground facilities, make for an idyllic spot for a weekend away.

The Falls are located 1.7 kilometres south of Blyth Homestead, in the western portion of the park, a structure built in 1929 and serves as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by the early pioneers.
