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.
