Tolmer Falls

Tolmer Falls is one of the most spectacular falls in the magnificent Litchfield National Park.

It cascades over two high escarpments into one deep plunge pool. Accessed by sealed road, the falls are located near the western boundary of the park, 85 kilometres south of Darwin as the crow flies.

A short walk takes you to 2 viewing platforms at the top of the gorge, opposite the most spectacular waterfalls in the park. Return to the carpark via the 1. 6 kilometre Tolmer Falls loop walk - an easy walk (that is rocky in parts) that takes about 45 minutes. Follow the path through typical Top End sandstone country, along Tolmer Creek and a tributary, past pristine rock pools. Swimming is not permitted.

Explorer Frederick Henry Litchfield named the falls after his late father's colleague in the South Australia Police, Alexander Tolmer.
