Litchfield National Park Waterfalls [DRW25]
Day Tour, Litchfield National Park Waterfalls. Darwin, Australia.

Established in 1986, Litchfield National Park is a stunning location. You can take in the splendor of thundering waterfalls, rainforest pockets and historic sacred sites. It is a haven for hundreds of native bird species and the plateau supports a rich range of woodland flora. The traditional custodians of the Park are the Wagait people, many of whom still call the area home.

Litchfield National Park’s major attractions are the permanent spring fed waterfalls of Florence, Tolmer and Wangi falls. The Park’s central sandstone plateau supports patches of monsoonal rainforest that thrive in the deep, narrow gorges, created over thousands of years by the force of the waterfalls cutting into the escarpment walls.

Common wildlife species include wallaroos, wallabies, possums, flying foxes and dingoes. The caves near Tolmer Falls are home to a colony of rare Orange Horseshoe Bats. Litchfield is also a haven for hundreds of native bird species. Birds of prey are common during the dry season and the Rainbow Bee-eater inhabits the sheltered areas close to waterfalls.

See the picturesque double waterfall that forms beautiful Florence Falls, surrounded by lush rainforest. Continue to Tolmer Falls which cascades over two high escarpments and plunges into a deep waterhole below.

Journey a short distance to the rock pool at Wangi Falls where there’s time to enjoy a refreshing swim in the waters at the waterfall’s base, (conditions permitting). Or perhaps take a nature walk to the top of Wangi Falls and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the lush surrounds.
