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.

I have always been a huge fan of the outdoors but was never a huge fan of walking. My wife would often try and drag me around the streets of the suburbs for some exercise. Occasionally I would join her, but not with much enthusiasm. It wasn't until a family holiday to the Grampians in Victoria that I took a few solo hikes and discovered bush walking and hiking. I have never looked back.

As with everything I do I threw myself into hiking with enthusiasm. I tracked every trip, took photos of all my hikes, wrote trail notes and eventually joined a few hiking groups so that I could share my new found passion. After chatting with fellow hikers, and through searching for new adventures myself I realised how difficult it was to find useful information about hiking. As I had been busy recording all of my hikes I wanted to share as much info as possible in order to make things easier for others.
