    You’ll need to drive to get around Litchfield. We recommend hiring a car or taking a tour from Darwin. If you decide to drive yourself, keep in mind that some areas can only be reached by 4WD.

Popular attractions include the waterfalls at Wangi, Florence and Tjaynera/Sandy Creek Falls, take a dip at Buley Rockhole, or explore the Lost City by 4WD. Walk around the giant Magnetic Termite Mounds. If you're feeling really adventurous, take a helicopter tour and see the splendour from the air.


    What should I bring to Litchfield?

    Bring a hat, water, sunscreen and insect repellant. A small first-aid kit can also come in handy.

    The park’s swimming holes are fun for the whole family, so you may like to bring swimwear, towels, goggles, and an underwater camera. Make sure to only swim where signs indicate it’s safe to do so.

    You can pack a picnic, or buy food in Batchelor and at Wangi Falls. Remember to bring a bag or two for your rubbish as there are no bins within the park.


    When is the best time to visit Litchfield?

    The best time to experience everything that Litchfield National Park has to offer is May to October – the weather is dry and pleasant and all roads are usually open. Litchfield is generally accessible year-round, and there’s nothing like seeing the waterfalls in all their glory from November to April.
