Litchfield National Park Tours
Litchfield National Park is located just an hour’s drive from Darwin and is often described as the Northern Territories best kept secret. It is home to an abundance of beautiful waterholes and waterfalls where you can swim to your heart’s content.
The stunning Wangi and Florence Falls are the best known and most popular attractions within the park and are not to be missed on your adventure to Litchfield. This region of Australia is a little slice of heaven and a must visit when visiting the Northern Territory.
Not only is Litchfield home to an array of magnificent swimming locations, it also known for a number of other reasons. They include the giant termite mounds that can be found up to 2 metres tall, the Lost City, a collection of strange rock formations created through years of erosion, and of course awe-inspiring scenery as far as the eye can see.
