Litchfield Tabletop Track is a 39km, grade 3-4 Circuit hike located in Litchfield National Park Northern Territory. The hike should take approximately 4 days to complete.

Summary

The Tabletop Track is an excellent, long bushwalk that lets you experience the remote wilderness of the Top End. The walk takes you through Litchfield National Park woodlands, along creeks and to scenic waterfalls and pools. The 39km circuit is suited for experienced, fit and well-prepared bushwalkers who can carry supplies. There are minimal facilities along the trail.

The track is usually closed at the end of September for the Wet Season. Permits are needed to access the track at this time. The threat of wildfires may close the track at other times. The Tabletop Track is accessed by one of several link walks. You can also use the links to walk shorter sections of the track. There are link walks at Florence Falls, Greenant Creek, Wangi Falls and Walker Creek.

Camping areas

If you want to camp, you must stay at one of the three campgrounds along the track, or at marked campgrounds elsewhere in the park.

About the region

Litchfield National Park

Litchfield National Park is a must see if you’re in the Top End.

It’s home to several stunning waterfalls that cascade into crystal clear pools, iconic magnetic termite mounds and clusters of weathered sandstone pillars at the Lost City.

Swimming under the falls and relaxing in waterholes is a favourite pastime for visitors and locals alike.

It is a popular day tour destination from Darwin or Katherine, but many visitors choose to stay overnight in one of the campgrounds.

Beautiful walks leave from most popular sites.
