Florence Falls

Located in Litchfield National Park, the spectacular Florence Falls cascade into a plunge pool, set in a pocket of monsoon forest.

Enjoy the easy three minute walk from the car park to the scenic viewing platform high above the falls for panoramic views of the gorge, open valley, Florence Falls and the waterhole below. Note the contrast between the wet monsoon forest and the dry sandstone plateau. Stretch your legs by following the gorge rim walk down the stairs to the valley floor. A seat at the halfway mark provides the opportunity for a breather and a photo. Continue on to the plunge pool for a refreshing dip year-round in the crystal clear waters.

The one kilometre moderate grade Shady Creek walk will loop you back, along a stream through the rainforest-filled gorge, then through the woodlands back to Florence Creek. Bring a picnic and stop here for a break, complete with the sound of the creek bubbling past. It's then just a short stroll to the car park.

Camping available nearby at Florence Falls 2WD or Old 4WD campgrounds.

Bookings are essential and must be made online before you visit.

Florence Falls provides Link Walk track access to Litchfields' challenging 39 kilometre overnight Tabletop Track hike - walking and camping fees apply and must be booked online.
