Tjaynera/Sandy Creek Falls

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.
