Wangi Falls is a 1.6km, grade 3 Return hike located in Litchfield National Park Northern Territory. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

Choose the walking track that best suits your ability through lush monsoonal rainforest to the postcard-perfect swimming hole for an invigorating dip.

Wangi Falls is the best-known and most popular attraction in Litchfield National Park – a park renowned for its accessible and pristine natural beauty. Accessible by sealed road, the falls are found near the western boundary of the park, 150 kilometres south of Darwin.

Sit on the expansive manicured lawns of the picnic area and watch the water of the two falls cascade over the rock escarpments into the large plunge pool below. Take a dip in the pool, which is surrounded by lush monsoon rainforest. There is a kiosk, camping ground with hot showers and barbecues nearby.

There are various walking tracks, including a three kilometre track that takes you up over the falls and back to the car park. The falls can be closed to swimming periodically, especially during the tropical summer from October to March, as currents in the pool can become strong and dangerous, but the fast-flowing falls make for spectacular photography. At these times the kiosk and picnic facilities remain open.

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.
