Greenant Creek Walk / Tjaetaba Falls
The Greenant Creek Walk is a moderate return walk in Litchfield National Park with the rewarding swim in the Tjaetaba Falls plunge pool.
Starting at the bridge across Greenant Creek, this shady 2.7km walk follows the creek upstream then climbs steeply to Tjaetaba Falls Lookout. The walk is graded as moderate, but has some steep inclines, so allow about 1.5 hours to complete it.
The creeks and springs around this region have a constant supply of water, and therefore an abundance of remarkable flora and fauna. Along the walk you can see tall Carpentaria palms, fig trees and weeping paperbark trees, and along the forest floor you can spot geckos, lizards and frogs.
Visit early in the morning or at dusk, and you may spot the mob of Common Wallaroos that live in the area as they pop in for a drink.
Once you reach the top, catch your breath at the lookout at Tjaetaba Falls plunge pool and admire this Aboriginal sacred site and the creek below.
The custodians request that visitors only swim above the falls, so continue to the rock pools a bit further on.
